Good Shepherd Launches Website to Help Hungry and Homeless
WILMINGTON, NC, January 28, 2015 – Good Shepherd Center (GSC) announced today the launch of their new website to usher in a new decade of service to the community.
The mission of GSC is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and assist with the transition into housing. According to GSC Executive Director Katrina Knight, “The website is a wonderful tool that broadens our reach and increases awareness of our programs and services.” The website launch comes on the heels of GSC’s 30th anniversary and marks a new phase of service and care for the organization. The website serves as a central platform, that enables GSC to: improve recruitment of donors, sponsors, and volunteers, exchange educational information and stewardship opportunities, as well as highlight relevant news, important sponsors, and upcoming fundraising events.
Stated Knight, “We are very excited about the expanded capabilities of our new website, and we’re confident that it will enhance our ability to support this community and the people that rely on us.” Tayloe Gray (TG), a Wilmington-based digital marketing agency, donated its time and resources to design and implement the new website, pro bono. “At TG, we are passionate about giving back to our local community,” said Andrew Gray, Partner and CTO. Account manager, Taffy Souphab, added, “It is an honor to collaborate with the GSC team and provide assistance to this deserving organization.”
Knight also expressed gratitude to the local community, acknowledging that their support makes it possible to grow the programs and services needed to end hunger and homelessness in the tri-county region. “Our website is just one of the many tools we use to communicate our cause, our successes, and our needs. After 31 years we continue to seek ways to do more for our neighbors in need,” concluded Knight.
