Thanks to the generosity of parishioners Judith and David, Good Shepherd established a new outreach fund to assist seniors who attend our church. Through the Good Shepherd Senior Emergency Relief Fund, senior-aged parishioners on a fixed-income can now receive up to $50 in emergency financial assistance to help them pay for unforeseen expenses, such as a medical co-pay or prescription, or groceries and fuel, and other minor expenses that occasionally pop up.
During the past few years, Good Shepherd Outreach Services has witnessed an increase in the number of seniors who occasionally struggle to pay their monthly expenses. This is a major concern, as the senior population in our community and across the U.S. is swiftly rising. And that’s why the Good Shepherd Senior Emergency Relief Fund is truly a blessing for our church.
