FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- State officials say the woman who operates a homeless shelter for female veterans in Fayetteville has met the deadline to apply for a license needed so she can seek donations.
The Fayetteville Observer reported that a spokesman for North Carolina's secretary of state says Barbara Marshall filed the paperwork Friday. Spokesman George Jeter says the office has until March 20 to approve or reject her application.
Marshall is the founder and director of a nonprofit organization that operates Jubilee House. The group has received donations but doesn't have the proper license to do so.
Last year, volunteers helped build a 7,200-square-foot duplex to house homeless female veterans on the television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." First lady Michelle Obama visited the house and appeared on the show.
