Feed my Sheep hosted a COVID-19 testing unit

The world has completely changed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Some people are still looking for a place they can get tested for the disease.

Today in Gulfport, a free COVID-19 mobile testing unit was set up at Feed my Sheep. Feed my Sheep has been stepping up in a big way to help feed the community during these unprecedented times. Now, they are going above and beyond to make sure everyone who needs to get checked for the coronavirus has access to testing.

Feed my Sheep serves many members of the community who are currently experiencing homelessness and they might be at a higher risk for contracting COVID-19. Feed my Sheep Board Member Will Shurley said, “Well, at Feed my Sheep we like to think of ourselves as the front door to the homeless population of Gulfport. So, we know that is a very vulnerable population. We know that it’s hard to do social distancing when you’re homeless. So, we are glad to offer this service today so that folks can make sure that they are healthy or if they are sick then they know what resources are available to them.”

Feed my Sheep is always looking for volunteers and food and monetary donations to serve the community.
