Rating: 5 stars  

When I moved to Silver Spring in 2001, I was looking for a place that provided food security and clothing to those most in need in my new community. What I discovered was a place that provides even more - Shepherd's Table serves its dinner guests and clients with dignity, compassion and dependability. Shepherd's Table will lunch a weekend brunch service on December 16, 2012, marking the countdown to the 30th anniversary.

When I moved to Silver Spring in 2000, I sought out a place that helped people needing a hand out and a hand up. Shepherd's Table, now for more than 27 years has been fulfilling that need - providing a delicious and healthy meal every single day, clothing closet, referrals to shelters and social services, a shower, eye clinic, Rx referral and all with dignity.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I make financial as well as in-kind donations to Shepherd's Table. It's place the serve the most basic needs with the most basic care and dignity. Now on the board - after 10 years as a donor - I'm even more impressed with the staff, finances and how well it serves

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

recruit more people to donate, volunteer and contribute their time as volunteers to help govern and serve
