Shepard News & Notes
February 5, 2016
Last week, the West Deerfield Township building--including the Food Pantry--suffered severe damage due to a pressure backup. Food Pantry staff and volunteers are working hard to continue serving our community members in need while they rebuild.
The immediate need at the Food Pantry is for gift cards. Please consider donating a $5 or $10 Jewel or Walgreens gift card. All District 109 buildings have donation sites; at Shepard, our Philanthropy Club is sponsoring bins for card donation in the main office.
The organization that does so much for our community needs our help! Let’s step up and take care of them!
