Elvis' Girls Pay A Visit To Homeless Shelter
PRISCILLA PRESLEY, her daughter LISA MARIE PRESLEY and granddaughter RILEY KEOUGH thrilled homeless families in Memphis, Tennessee, over the Christmas (04) holiday when they turned up to visit a new family housing project.
Those being offered housing in the new Presley Place were delighted to hear a celebrity was coming to pay a seasonal visit - but they had no idea the Presley girls would be turning up together.
The project, a joint venture between the ELVIS PRESLEY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION and the METROPOLITAN INTER-FAITH ASSOCIATION, will house dozens of families annually.
Lisa Marie officially opened the shelter in July 2001, and it has since become a shelter for more than 13 adults and 32 children.
Lisa Marie admits her father ELVIS would have been delighted with the idea: "When my father moved from Tupelo, Mississippi, to Memphis with his family, they lived in a place called the Lauderdale estates which was a similar family housing project.
"He always had that in the back of his mind to continue."04/01/2005 08:59
