Caring 4 ClassroomsA community suppport ministry of Good Shepehrd Lutheran Church
To journey with teachers and staff, to support the classroom environment.
To make available needed supplies a teacher uses in their classroom through out the year, supporting students as unforeseen circumstances arise which can interfere with their learning experience.
Teachers dedicate themselves to shaping the minds of growing leaders. Often they dip into their own pockets in an effort to make the learning day pop with enthusiasm and to
create a space that is healthy both physically and mentally. We at Good Shepherd Lutheran, desire to support their efforts so they, both teachers, staff, and students, know they are appreciated, valued, and cared for.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of items may be requested?
Any items that will serve the classroom and students needs, not covered by school curriculum money.
How do the items get to the requestor?
Caring4classroom will purchase the items and deliver them to your school.
Can I donate items that I don’t use in my classroom?
Caring4classrooms does not have space at this time to store items. If you do have items that you are not using please let us know and we will keep records of these items and share contact information so the items can be given to another classroom.
Can I receive a voucher/check instead?
The monies for this ministry are donated and as a part of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has to be paid for by their treasurer. Since they meet only once a month it is faster and more efficient to have church members purchase the items. We also need to report back to our donors and show them what we have spent their generous gift on. So at this time we are unable to give a cash donation.
Is there a dollar amount limit?
No, but since funds are limited we may not be able to fill every request.
What grades do you serve?
Which districts/schools can apply?
At this time we are only serving Williston Public Schools District 1
Who can donate?
Anyone who desires to support student and teachers needs are invited to send an offering to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church noting: Caring4classrooms in the memo line. The money will go to a designated fund and will only be spent on this ministry.
Do you pay for children’s lunches?
Most schools have a free and reduced lunch program so at this time we are not paying for lunch. However, we are willing to purchase snacks for testing days or other events.
Is it for individual students?
Yes! We are looking to fill needs that are not covered by the school or other programs.
