Chase Shelter Please Help

December 30th

The next opportunity for Good Shepherd to provide meals to the Chase Shelter and bag lunches to the Men’s Emergency Shelter in Rockville will be on September 30, 2017.

This service project requires the work of many hands, and we are appreciative of all who have contributed in the past. Your volunteer opportunities include:

1. Provide a hot casserole for the Saturday supper. NOTE: The casserole does not need to be home made; grocery store lasagna is quite fine. Please bring the casserole to the family life wing kitchen on or prior to 1:00 p.m. on September 30. You can bring a warm casserole on the day of delivery, or bring one to be heated prior to the date of delivery (just be sure to label it for Chase Shelter). You should prepare the casserole in a disposable dish as it will NOT be returned to you.

2. Please sign up for other supplies needed on the list; bring them prior to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 30, and label items for Chase Shelter. These supplies include cold cuts, cheese slices, bread, drinks, fruit, snacks, brownie mix, etc. (the list of needs varies each time so be sure to check the bulletin board).

It is important to sign up because we purchase items that we do not have and this becomes costly. You can also inform Gaetan Brunetto of your intentions at the phone number and email address mentioned below.

On Saturday, September 30 at 1:00 p.m. we will be meeting to prepare everything, make brownies, assemble lunches pack and load the items for delivery.

It takes about 1-1½ hours and is usually a lot of fun. If you can participate or have any questions, please contact Gaetan Brunetto at 301-814-8001 or at

Students who participate are eligible to receive service hours credit for school (bring your forms with you). Your dedication to this outreach ministry is greatly appreciated. Many thanks to all who have contributed both their time and donations in the past.
