Hooray for volunteers!

Good Shepherd’s volunteers help make a better world — for the homeless, and for the whole community.

That’s why, on the evening on November 9, we hung up festive banners, laid out a feast of turkey and trimmings, and danced to tunes spun by Lighthouse DJ. The life-giving work done by volunteers at Good Shepherd Ministries deserves a celebration.

Br. David Lynch, Executive Director, launched the evening by thanking volunteers. An estimated 8,000 volunteers give their time at Good Shepherd each year. Their work makes good things happen for marginalized members of our community.

Recognition pins were awarded to our volunteers for 20, 10, 5, and up to 5 years of service. The dedicated, long-term volunteers who were recognized (more than 20 people picked up 20-year pins) are playing a vital role in providing compassionate services at Good Shepherd Ministries.

Thank you again to all the “Good Shepherd angels” who are making the world better for the homeless, one act of kindness at a time.
