'Tis the season to give back! Shepard has two ways to help families this year!

Our Shining Stars Foundation is in NEED!

They are collecting toys, games, teen gift sets, bath gels/soaps, nail polish, Bluetooth headphones, anything from Five Below, and gift cards to Five Below, Target & Walmart. No wrapping is necessary!

They are also in NEED of new socks, new underwear, new winter gloves & new/gently used winter coats.

There will be a bin labeled in the lobby!

Our Shining Stars Foundation is a non-profit organization that services Lake County.

The Shepard Student Council is doing Operation Snowflake and collecting for community members in need. Please see the link below. Operation Snowflake is a gift-giving program to help our community during a time of need so that everyone has a joyful holiday season.
