Norwalk emergency shelter receives donation

The Norwalk emergency shelter is getting a facelift thanks to Diageo - North America.

More than 70 employees from the company's finance department rolled up their sleeves today to paint, lay down new floors and clean the building.

Shelter officials say Diageo's providing a much needed service to the people in Norwalk.

Diageo also donated $10,000 to the shelter to help provide food and clothing to the homeless.
