Good Shepherd hosts three annual drives: the Mother’s Day Cradle Project (May), the School Supply Drive (August), and the Giving Tree (December). Donations go to our local non-profit community partners to serve those in need. Volunteers promote the drives and deliver donations to the different non-profits.
