About

Hey, Ram Community 🐏! Today is #RamsGivingTuesday and our students are counting on your support.

In today's economic climate and with the lingering challenges from the pandemic, Shepherd students are increasingly susceptible to basic needs insecurities and mental health challenges. 

Helping Shepherd students with these basic needs - food, clothing & emotional stability - allows them to focus on their primary goal of receiving an education. It takes a community, coming together in support of students, for education to transcend the classroom and prepare our Rams for not only their careers, but lives full of purpose.

And this is why we need YOU!  On Tuesday, November 29, we invite you to support these three initiatives:

  • Shepherd University Counseling Services: This team of professionals focus on students' mental health and well-being. Through everything from one-to-one sessions to Mindful Monday and Wellness Wednesday outreach programs, Counseling Services supports students with anxiety, depressions, stress or relationship issues. 
  • Ram Pantry: The pantry provides food, school supplies, and hygiene supplies for students who find themselves struggling to meet their financial needs while enrolled at Shepherd.
  • Ram Closet: Whether it is a suit for a job interview or a warm winter coat, the campus closet offers gently used or new clothes to students.

Watch for updates throughout the day to see how your donation will unlock additional gifts. Celebrate as we come together in support of our Ram Family!
