Good Shepherd, through the coordination of Works of Mercy Homeless Outreach Ministry, the Knights of Columbus, and St Vincent de Paul is partnering with EG HART to enable individuals and families to transition from homelessness into stable housing. Your assistance is needed to help them get on their feet to furnish their apartments.
We are helping a woman and her nephew who have been homeless but with the assistance of the City of Elk Grove and EG Hart they were placed in a series of hotels and are now ready to move into stable housing. The aunt is in her 60’s and she is caring for her young nephew with Downs Syndrome. Elk Grove Hart has been working with this family to provide stability to these two remarkable people. They are starting out with very little and are in need of Good Shepherd’s assistance to furnish their new place. Thank you ahead of time for your loving support for these children of God.
Please refer to the sign up below for instructions regarding delivery of donations. If you require pick up of larger items, please indicate in the comments section of your sign up.
"Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me." As the giver, please consider this passage when determining if your gift is something that will be pleasing to God. Used household items are welcome as long as they are clean and in very good condition. When considering whether or not to donate a used item, please donate with love and only those items that you would be proud to give to a dear friend or family member. Do not donate items if broken, chipped, damaged or dirty. Please prewash all items prior to donating (where appropriate). Realistically, for sanitation purposes, some items must be new and others are marked as such. During drop off/pick up, donations will be screened to assure they meet the necessary criteria.
Ministries may want to consider signing up for a cluster of items as a bundled gift from your ministry. Examples are bathroom starter kit, kitchen essentials, cleaning and utility products, etc.
Please review the sign up below to see how you can help. God bless you and thank you ahead of time for your charitable heart and good works of mercy! Please email Betty May at email@example.com with any questions.
