The Benevolence Ministry at Shepherd’s Arms began with just a food pantry. Today the ministry has grown to include school shoes and uniforms, book bags, hygiene packs, books/bears/blankets for children, quilts and blankets, umbrellas, school supplies, meals served on site including a special Thanksgiving Dinner and Thanksgiving Turkey Boxes delivered to those in need and Christmas Adoption of needy families.
