Collecting Items for the Needy
Good Shepherd collects non-perishable food, clothing and other items of necessity for our mission partners several times throughout the year. This is an easy way for you to directly help those in need in our community by simply bringing these items to church when you visit, and we will take care of distributing the items on your behalf. Make sure you sign up for our weekly E-Newsletter so that you can be aware of our collection dates.
Your donations help the following organizations:
