Shepherd's Way Relief Center
Hi friends! I've created a sign up for those interested in helping each week with serving and feeding the homeless at Shepherd's Way Relief Center.
Shepherd's Way Relief Center, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit community development center founded by members of Love of Christ Fellowship Ministries Church as a faith based outreach ministry. Shepherd's Way was incorporated in the state of Virginia on March 14, 2012 and received IRS tax exemption status on August 31, 2012.
Shepherd's Way serves breakfast to 120-175 of our Richmond homeless and my goal, along with your help, is to serve and feed them on Wednesday each week. It is a 2 hour commitment 8:15-10:30.
Please show up around 8:15 am at the 4th street entrance. Someone is normally there to help you unload and there is metered parking along the street. Everything should be cooked beforehand and can be reheated if needed at the center. Waffles can be brought in thawed and placed in pans to heat. The sign up is a suggestion on what to bring - feel free to comment if you are bringing something different or just more of one thing.
Kids are welcome to come during their school breaks and/or summer months and our kids that have been multiple times keep asking to go back. It is a very rewarding experience and helpful to not just donate but see where your donation goes, how it is being used, and who it serves. THIS is what keeps me going back.
Let me know if you have any questions! 804-337-5700 or [email protected]
You can also contact Richard Lepper 804-729-1657 who manages the kitchen.
I promise you won't regret spending a morning at Shepherd's Way!
*The tax exempt number of the center is 45-4457571 for your records.
