Outreach Committee Announces Planned Activities for 2018

First of all, we’d like to thank all of the parishioners at Good Shepherd for the generous donations to our Souper Sunday ingathering for Covenant Cupboard which was held at the beginning of February.

Set forth below, a bit belatedly, is a schedule of Outreach Committee planned activities for the year.  We will provide reminders of these activities throughout the year as their planned times approach, but wanted to put them all in one place as another way of helping the Congregation keep track of the outreach opportunities that are available.  The individual activities listed below are in addition to other year-round activities which include (i) putting together birthday bags for Covenant Cupboard, (ii) clothing and related donations for St. Francis and St. Clare’s, (iii) serving dinner at St. Clare’s on the third Tuesday of each month, and (iv) donations of toiletries to the Rose Andom Center (see previous article) and St. Clare’s.
