When one of our Shiel Sexton employees heard that Shepherd Community on the East side of Indianapolis was in need of supplies for their fall break assistance program, he reached out to SSCares to spread the word. The response he got from his fellow employees was a tremendous and heartwarming show of generosity with 153 lbs of food collected for the program in less than 10 days!
According to Chief Program Officer, Andrew Green, around 95 percent of the area’s students are on free or reduced meals while in school, but many of them do not have access to two or three meals a day while not in school (Choi, 2016). Shepherd Community meets this need by providing Break Totes to children, which include enough supplies for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
Thank you to all of our Shiel Sexton employees who stepped up to meet this need! To learn more about Shepherd Community, please visit www.shepherdcommunity.org.
