“Hunger and homelessness happen for a number of reasons; a job loss, an illness, a divorce or a disability. Whatever the reason Lowell Transitional Living Center is here to help by providing a full range of services aimed at lifting people up. LTLC helps open doors for our most vulnerable citizens and believes everyone deserves a safe place to call home. For so many who have lost hope, our dedicated staff and high quality programs restore dignity one person and a time” (LTLC)
During the month of October we will be collecting socks, underwear, warm hats, gloves etc. for the Lowell Transitional Living Center.
Good Shepherd’s relationship goes back over 20 years, beginning with parishioners volunteering at the shelter and a drive to collect men's white socks for their clients. This evolved into the “Undies Sundays” program, a one-month drive in the fall to collect socks, underwear, warm hats, gloves, etc. Over the years Good Shepherd has raised money to purchase 60 cots for the emergency winter program, donated 100 pillows, 100 blankets, and monies for special programs.
During the month of October, please bring your donations to the church where there will be a designated area for drop off. E-mail Helene Gagliano at email@example.com with any questions.
