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.
Good Shepherd community, WE NEED YOU! Our Disaster Relief and Recovery (DRR) team is hard at work with the next phase to help those impacted by Hurricane Ida. We sincerely appreciate the efforts and commitment of our community thus far. In this next phase, we’re working with the nonprofit organization, Bless Your Heart to prepare for a current needs delivery to distribution centers in Lafourche Parish. You can help!
