The Shepherd's House, an organization which provides life saving shelter, food, and recovery resources to Bend's neediest citizens, is seeking community support to earn a $40,000 matching grant.
If the organization can garner $40,000 in donations from individual donors, then the organization will earn a matching $40,000 in grant money.
"This is a huge opportunity to impact those most in need in our community. Not only can we provide a meal and shelter, it is our desire to open the door to a relationship with a person that comes to our door and lead them to a new life. We have help available for the addicted, hurting person to heal and become a contributing part of our community. This past year we have provided almost 50,000 meals and over 10,000 shelter nights. This grant opportunity could assist in providing additional resources to continue to help provide these and more in 2012." said Curt Floski, Director of The Shepherd's House.
The deadline for The Shepherd's House to raise the funds is August 31. Donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 5484, Bend, OR 97708 or donors can make a secure online donation at www.myshepherdshouse.org.
