The Good Shepherd relies solely on donations from the community to feed, clothe, house, and treat the homeless in Toronto. 100% of all donations will be put towards purchasing brand new bedsheets and blankets for all 95 beds inside of the shelter.
I was introduced to the Good Shepherd as a volunteer during my high school Career at Villanova College. After making dozens upon dozens of beds with my peers, I became immediately humbled when finding holes in the sheets people would sleep on just hours later. In addition, I noticed that not all of the blankets were big enough to fit the twin-sized beds, or that some were cut in half to maximize its use. Although the staff and clients of the Good Shepherd are eternally grateful for the used blanket donations from the community, it would be dignifying to purchase brand-new sheets specifically for the clients themselves.
I am working directly with the Good Shepherd Homeless Shelter to raise funds for this project. The goal is to raise enough money to purchase bed sheets, blankets, and pillows for each bed in time for Christmas 2017.
Please consider how blessed we are to have our own beds to come home to each night. ANY donation, big or small, will go a long way.
Thank you kindly.
