Martin Luther King, Jr.
Day of Service
In recognition of Martin Luther King Day of Service, members of the Women’s Club of Milton (WCOM) organized a clothing collection drive. Club Recording Secretary Diane Bitterle volunteered to organize the initiative. She contacted Jim Martin, Director at The Shephard’s Office, to find out what the organization may need these upcoming months.
With Jim’s suggestions in mind, club members generously donated new flashlights, batteries, and new winter clothing such as socks, gloves, hats, scarves, etc. to help those in need stay warm these upcoming months. All items were delivered to The Shepherd’s Office on January 18. One volunteer, Phil Troyes, peeked into a bag of clothing and pulled out a new pair of gloves. He said he had just given out their last pair and was so happy to receive a fresh supply. The Shepherd’s Office made plans to distribute the new clothing that evening during dinner.
The Shepherd’s Office is a non-profit located in Georgetown. It provides food, clothing, and counseling services to those in need.
