Community Service Callouts

Shepard Center Fall Festival

Let's have fun for Halloween!  Shepherd will have a Fall Festival for the students who attend our Academy and any other neighborhood children who would like to have a fun and safe time for Halloween.  The event will take place outside in the Shepherd Community parking lot on October 31 from 1:00 - 4:00.  Volunteers will be asked to help set up, dress in fun appropriate costumes, and donate candy to hand out to the children.  This will be a drive-through event for the neighbors, but still, fun and time to get treats! 

Students sign up for volunteer Opportunities with ProAct an organization we have partnered with this year. Some of our students are are participating in a pilot program called "Teens in Action". We invite our students to sign up on their website to get notifications for service opportunities. Parents you can too. Go to to create an account. They list several volunteer opportunities each week. Here's one to think about, but you'll need to sign up on their website.

St. Vincent de Paul urgently needs volunteers

The National Guard will end their temporary, six-month deployment at the end of September. We are so grateful to the National Guard who have filled a critical gap and provided the workforce needed to keep our Food Pantry open. We have seen dramatic drops in volunteers and cannot continue effectively without more help. SVdP is eager to welcome volunteers regularly to safely distribute food to our neighbors.

We have adapted our operations to prioritize the safety of volunteers and provide food to those in need while following public health guidelines. We need help packing food boxes, repackaging produce and meat, and loading boxes in cars. We can also use more volunteers at our Distribution Center sorting clothing donations. Won’t you please answer the call to help us love our neighbors during this unsettling time so no one goes hungry or without clothing or household goods? Sign up today:
