January – March 2018


Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, Hayesville has instituted a diaper ministry for Matt’s Food Bank which will be available to clients at the start of 2018. In December food bank volunteers surveyed Matt’s clients and identified diaper sizes and needs; they then communicated the results to the Women’s Auxiliary at Good Shepherd.  Good Shepherd will obtain and package sized diapers, delivering them to the Food Pantry where they will be available for distribution on Saturday mornings.  Diapers are a needed item in homes with young children – this ministry effort funded by Good Shepherd is a wonderful addition to the  support we can offer to Clay County families.  Thank you Good Shepherd!


New Life Church – Youth Group ( Hayesville) will be working with Sister Terry Martin (IHM -Hayesville) to augment the clothes closet offered by Sister Terry on Saturday mornings. The teen volunteers will operate the closet one Saturday a month, organizing, sizing and setting up the clothes for interested clients. Thank you for all you do!
