Parishioner Craig Friedel emailed the 2008 stats for the Moving Assistance Program, founded and headquartered here at Good+ 35 completed moves
Shepherd, Sioux Falls:
- + 80% of the moves helped the disabled
- + 28% helped the elderly
- + 23% helped the victims of domestic violence
- + 40% help families
- + 6% helped the homeless
The program launched in the second quarter of the year, and there were moves (sometimes more than one) almost every week.
Also, parishioner Gene Makinson stood up in church on Sunday to
thank the folks for supporting his team at the Salvation Army Sunday Dinner -
the number of dinner guests continues to climb and the team served a record 175
on the Sunday after Christmas.
