Vol­un­teer Dri­vers Needed

The Shepherd’s Cen­ter has an urgent need for vol­un­teer dri­vers for trans­porta­tion to urgent med­ical appoint­ments and gro­cery shopping.

You can help by offer­ing a few hours of your time to pro­vide a ride. The Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field, a non-​profit inter­faith orga­ni­za­tion, offers free, accom­pa­nied trans­porta­tion, in-​home handy­man ser­vices, and low-​cost classes to adults over 50.

Vol­un­teer dri­vers are des­per­ately needed to con­tinue pro­vid­ing trans­porta­tion in the area. You can make a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity by vol­un­teer­ing only a cou­ple of hours a month! We are par­tic­u­larly in need of dri­vers in the fol­low­ing areas: Chester, Chester­field, Hopewell, Prince George, and Chester.

Become a part of this close-​knit vol­un­teer com­mu­nity; you may need their help some­day, too! Call The Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field at (804) 7066689.

Amaz­ing Raise For 2014

It gets even bet­ter — when you give dur­ing The Amaz­ing Raise, you also give your favorite non­prof­its the chance to win addi­tional incen­tive prizes rang­ing from $500 to $15,000!

The Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion* will reward the non-​profit orga­ni­za­tion with the most unique donors a $10,000 grant — in addi­tion to the dona­tions that we receive dur­ing the Amaz­ing Raise. A mul­ti­tude of other prizes are avail­able as well.

In 2013 your gen­er­ous dona­tions raised over $800.00 to ben­e­fit the Shep­herd Cen­ter of Chesterfield’s Com­mu­nity Car­ing ser­vices for the elderly. We sin­cerely thank you for your generousity.

This year we will again par­tic­i­pate in the Amaz­ing Raise to raise money for help­ing to con­tinue our services.

Include The Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field In Your Estate Planning

Include The Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field In Your Estate Plan­ning Have you reviewed your long-​range finan­cial and estate plans recently? Your will, liv­ing trust, retire­ment plans and other gift and estate plan­ning vehi­cles can pro­vide an oppor­tu­nity to sup­port your favorite char­i­ta­ble inter­ests. If you would be inter­ested in mak­ing a gift of ongo­ing sig­nif­i­cance, these ideas may inter­est you:

  • A gift included in your will or liv­ing trust is one way to estab­lish a last­ing legacy.
  • A gift of retire­ment assets, such as pen­sion plans or IRAs, may allow you to give more than you thought pos­si­ble, while elim­i­nat­ing taxes that may oth­er­wise largely con­sume these assets.
  • Con­sider gifts of life insur­ance. Gifts of poli­cies or pro­ceeds you may no longer need offer excel­lent tax benefits.

We sin­cerely appre­ci­ate your inter­est and sup­port in help­ing The Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field enrich the lives of adults 50 and over by pro­vid­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for inter­faith com­mu­nity ser­vice, life­long learn­ing and assis­tance in main­tain­ing an inde­pen­dent lifestyle. Please con­tact Susan McCam­mon at (804) 7069198 if you are inter­ested in these ideas.

Memo­r­ial and Honor Gifts

Memo­r­ial and Honor Gifts Memo­r­ial or honor con­tri­bu­tions offer many ways to rec­og­nize peo­ple who are spe­cial to you. Memo­r­ial gifts ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity by mak­ing a mean­ing­ful dif­fer­ence in mem­ory of some­one spe­cial. Honor gifts can express thanks and appre­ci­a­tion, extend con­grat­u­la­tions or con­vey mes­sages of best wishes. When you make a memo­r­ial or honor gift, The Shepherd’s Cen­ter will notify the fam­ily or indi­vid­ual of your thought­ful­ness if you include their con­tact infor­ma­tion with your gift.
