Community support
vital for Shepherd Care

Willene Austin of Hoxie (left) and Maxine Powers of Walnut Ridge volunteer Monday sorting clothing at Shepherd Care, a clothing ministry that serves Lawrence County.
"When you do it unto the least of these, you do it unto me." The Scripture teaches Christians to clothe and feed the poor. Residents in Lawrence County can fulfill this mission by donating clothing or monetary gifts to Shepherd Care at 710 Highway 67B in Walnut Ridge.

Leroy Scudder of the Lawrence County Ministerial Alliance said the idea for the ministry was born by members of a Walnut Ridge First Free Will Baptist Sunday school class several years ago. The class began collecting items for the needy and the demand quickly outgrew the space provided.
