December 1 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem, in collaboration with area congregations, coordinates a Saturday Night Fellowship program serving older adults who live in subsidized housing communities in and around the downtown area. This group usually meets for a monthly meal and time of fellowship, but due to COVID-19, no gatherings have been possible since March of 2020.
In order to keep with our tradition of providing holiday gift bags to guests in December, we plan to deliver bags to Saturday Night Fellowship participants at the various housing communities where they live. As in the past, we are inviting groups in the community to participate in this ministry by collecting items for this year’s gift bags. We need items to fill 125 gift bags.
This year, Highland Presbyterian Church is partnering with us to host two drive-thru gift drop-off opportunities: Wednesday, December 1, 3:00-6:00 pm and Sunday, December 5, 12:00 pm-3:00 pm. The drop-off location is the Highland Presbyterian Church Activity Building, 2381 Cloverdale Avenue, Winston-Salem.

We welcome gifts from individuals, congregations, youth or missions groups, businesses, or community organizations. Monetary gifts are also appreciated to assist with purchasing items.
For your convenience, click here to sign up for items you wish to donate using Sign Up Genius. If you need assistance or more information, please contact Linda Lewis at 336-748-0217, or llewis@shepherdscenter.org.

For some, this gift may be their only Christmas present. Thank you for your help!
