Prince George’s County Council member Andrea Harrison (D-Springdale) is encouraging donations to the Shepherd’s Cove Homeless Shelter at a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at National Harbor.

Harrison, who also serves as this year’s chairman of the Metropolitan Council of Governments, said in a statement that proceeds from the fundraiser, organized by United Communities Against Poverty, will help pay for expanded day-care hours for children at the shelter, which is in Harrison’s mid-county district.

The fundraiser is at Bella Cosmetic Surgery, 120 Waterfront St., National Harbor, and is open to the public, a spokeswoman for Harrison said.
