SHEPHERD'S CENTER OF FALL RIVER

"Where Age Is An Asset"

We are non-profit, supported

solely by donations. Your contribution

makes it possible for us to continue our Programs and  Services. Thank You!

Transportation

                                        "Time and Transportation" volunteers are members of a Shepherd's

                                        Center team who participate in enabling elders to go to stores,

                                        medical appointments, and other community activities.

                                        For those who cannot access public transportation, the gift of

                                        "wheels" is so very much appreciated by those who would otherwise

                                        be cut off from any activities other than the most basic necessities.

Shepherd's Center volunteers provide no-cost,

door-to-door service, and the extra help that

many elders need to get to places the rest of

us take for granted. Not only do they provide

transportation, but they also give the precious

gift of time - time for elders to move at their

own pace, time to visit a friend, time to run an

errand, time to "visit" while riding.

Giving a ride to a neighbor goes hand in hand with the commitment to put Faith into Action by helping to keep neighbors living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.


Brown Bagging

In conjunction with the Greater Boston Food Bank,

Shepherd's Center "Brown Bagging" volunteers

distribute groceries monthly to low income elders.

Those who participate in this monthly program give hope to others as they deliver groceries to those in need. Our volunteers tell us that feeding the hungry is only one part of the equation. The other part is how they themselves are fed. They have discovered the wonderful secret of volunteering - you get as much as you give!

Do you, or someone you know, need help with groceries? Call our office and we will assist you. As you hungry for a chance to help? Call for more information.
