Duffle Bags delivered to Youth Shelter

Good Shepherd has been collecting duffle bags, clothing, toiletries and other needed items for Valley Youth House since May. This month we delivered items collected to the shelter. The youth were excited and loved the duffle bags. They were picking favorites as they helped carry them into the house. You could tell how much they appreciated that someone cared enough about them. WE were just in time with the toiletries as they had just run out of supplies that day.

My wife Eileen, along with my daughters Amanda and Caela delivered the items. We also prepared lunch and spent an afternoon getting to know the youth currently at the shelter. During lunch preparation we had the opportunity to help some of the teens learn new cooking skills. Throughout our visit we learned about their hopes and dreams. These children left lasting impressions on us. It was a privilege and a blessing to be able to deliver these items and spend time with them.

The need for the items collected is ongoing. We will continue collecting items and make additional deliveries. Click here to view the list of items needed. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.
