"The Thanksgiving season is a time to reflect on gratitude and come together as a community. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors are facing the harsh reality of homelessness. It is our honor and privilege to provide a safe, welcoming grace-filled environment." said Shelly Gibbs, new Director of Development at Shepherd's House Ministries.


In addition to the Thanksgiving food drive, Shepherd's House Ministries continues its efforts to provide essential winter gear to those experiencing homelessness. Having recently concluded its annual winter gear drive, the organization has already distributed all donated coats and waterproof gloves to those in need. The demand remains high, and Shepherd's House Ministries is urging the community to contribute to this ongoing initiative.


"As temperatures drop, the need for warm clothing becomes even more critical. We are grateful for the support we've received so far but encourage our community to continue helping us keep our neighbors warm and safe this winter," added Tim Ellis Project SHARE Coordinator.


Donations of the listed Thanksgiving food items, as well as winter coats and waterproof gloves, can be dropped off at Shepherd's House Ministries located at 1854 NE Division Street, Bend, Oregon.
