Since 1973 Project Shepherd has made holiday wishes come true for thousands of Lakewood residents in need. The neighbor-to-neighbor assistance program has collected canned goods, dry staples, toys and simple gifts in an effort to spread holiday cheer to struggling single moms, out-of-work parents, youngsters and lonely seniors who may otherwise face a bleak Christmas.


Project Shepherd operates via the work of volun­teers from the Rotary Club of Lakewood, Lakewood schools, and many Lakewood organizations and individuals. They help collect food items, sort and package the gift bundles, and assist with their distribution to the needy. The Lakewood city family -- through the city’s Recreation and Community Services Department -- helps Project Shepherd with warehouse space and the review of recipient applications.
