As a 501(c)3 organization, Feed My Sheep does not receive any monetary assistance from local, county, state or federal governments. We survive on the donations of individuals, churches, companies, and organizations that share our concern for those in need.
The authority of Feed My Sheep is vested in a board of 12 trustees. Board members, supported by over 100 volunteers, make the program work by collecting donations, preparing and serving the food, and maintaining the facility.
Why Should YOU Donate?
Feed My Sheep’s operating expenses average $13,500 per month, more than double what the expenses were prior to Hurricane Katrina. That’s $160,000 a year that has to be raised in order to operate and continue feeding the homeless and homebound in our community.
How to Donate:
There are several ways to donate…
- A one-time monetary donation can be made by mailing contributions to Post Office Box 6883, Gulfport, MS 39506.
- A recurring monetary donation can be set up through Automatic Bank Draft. This can be taken care of at your nearest Hancock Bank.
- There will be opportunities to participate in a Shepards Campaign. Those wanting to participate will be asked to host a small fundraiser in an effort to raise money throughout the year. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
