Grades 1-3 Giving Project

In first-third grade GodZone, children will be learning the phrase we give, because we have.  As we focus on different giving highlights throughout the year, children will learn about how their offering supports others, from right within our community to the other side of the globe!!

This month, as God’s Action, we are highlighting Dakota Woodlands, a homeless shelter in Eagan for women and their families. Dakota Woodlands houses up to 22 families, not only giving them shelter, but preparing them with life skills for their next steps!

Shepherd of the Valley has supported Dakota Woodlands for many years, with in-kind donations such as outerwear and school supplies, as well as monetary donations! Throughout the month, kids will share things they love about their own homes, and learn to appreciate how lucky they are to have a warm, safe place to live!
