We collect funds and send volunteers to work on Habitat for Humanity homes in the Fort Worth area. We are currently getting ready for another Habitat home build starting in September of 2010. Please Visit www.trinityhabitat.org
Several times each year, Holy Shepherd members hold food drives for local charities. We have helped the Open Arms home for abused women and immigrant families settling in Dallas.
Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church prepares Snack sacks for the students of Haslet Elementary School. The sacks consist of several small meals and snacks which are given to students in need over the weekend. Many area churches partner with local elementary schools to provide students with needed nourishment. Holy Shepherd has participated in the Snack Sack program since September 2014.
Every year, we travel to an area of the country damaged by recent storms. We work alongside homeowners helping them to rebuild their homes. We have been to New Orleans, LA; Port Arthur, TX and Galveston, TX. Our next trip will likely occur in May 2011.
