Project Shepherd is a combined community effort sponsored by Lakewood Rotary Club and the City of Lakewood.

The “Food Drive” includes any “nonperishable” food (sugar, flour, rice, beans and canned goods) Home-prepared foods and glass jars cannot be accepted. Bring your canned food donations to school between November 17 and December 5.
