Ways to Give


Donate to Do More in 24  beginning at midnight June 1st and ending at 11:59 PM.

The Shelter can and does use a great deal of supplies that are donated from members of the community and by various organizations and businesses. It is truly those donations that allow us to assist those in need in the community. Also, please remember that cash donations are placed into the general fund to pay the shelter's ongoing bills unless prior arrangements are made to earmark funds for a special project. Items received  are given to residents to be used during their stay at the shelter or given to them when they move into their own home.

No items donated to The Shepherd Place are ever sold.

Unexpired coupons are always needed and help us save money!  They can be dropped in the basket at the front desk.
