disaster relief, it's what we do:
Good Shepherd’s Disaster Relief and Recovery (DRR) program was born in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012. Since then, the Good Shepherd community has helped support both local and neighboring state disasters by mobilizing our resources quickly to work hand in hand with other volunteer organizations. The real story lies with our community who truly lives the school’s mission of serving with compassion. These important service experiences provide examples of core values so critical in the formation and education of our students.
relief efforts to date:
Teachers/staff opened the gym on Monday for students who
were affectedby the storms to play games and have fun.
DRR volunteers delivered non-perishable food and bottled water to Forest Green Manor, a low-rent,
publichousing development for seniors operated by the Dallas Housing Authority. They have no power and minimal resources, including financial, to secure additional food.
Volunteers delivered clean-up supplies (brooms, trash bags, gloves, etc.) to a hard-hit, low-income neighborhood around Walnut Hill and Webb Chapel roads.
Members of our community, including parents, faculty/staff, and alumni cooked and delivered 1,275 breakfast tacos on Wednesday morning to Forest Green Manor residents and the Walnut Hill/Webb Chapel neighborhood.
