Shepherd’s HOPE operating budget
is about $300,000 per year
for the food pantry and feeding center.
That includes our share of the cost (“rent” equivalent) for our 7 rooms, stipends for 22 staff members and volunteers, and all the ancillary items needed to operate both ministries. The 65,000 pounds of food we get each week touches the lives of 5,000 people.
That’s an annual cost of $60 per person per year
to be open to our neighbors 6 days a week.
We are thankful that through GOD’s guidance, we are able to allocate your hard-earned resources with frugality.
More than anything, because of your generosity, we have been given the opportunity to share who JESUS is, not so much by what we say but by how we live, while we serve our neighbors. ONLY GOD!
I believe in GOD’s sovereignty, and I believe in the team HE has put together called Shepherd’s HOPE. A team is not a team unless everybody is doing their part.
