Our Sincere Thanks

Shepherd’s Center of Orange Park (“SCOOP”) would like to thank Orange Park United Methodist Church for their many years of partnership with our organization. SCOOP exists and continues to grow because of their generosity. Orange Park United Methodist Church provides the Family Life Center, saving SCOOP tens of thousands of dollars. We very much appreciate their commitment to our program, senior adults and this community!

The Shepherd’s Center of Orange Park would like to thank our major sponsors: Allegro, Back and Spine Institute, Benton House, Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, Orange Park Medical Center, Seagrass Village and The Windsor. Thank you!

The Shepherd’s Center is grateful for the continued donation of printing of our newsletter from St. Giles Presbyterian Church. Without this generous donation SCOOP would not be able to keep costs affordable for the Adventures in Learning Program.

Thank you to Orange Park Presbyterian Church which has provided free space for the SCOOP Bridge Class on Tuesdays for many years.

Thank you to Cross+Road Lutheran Church for offering the use of their educational facility at a nominal fee for the second SCOOP location on Fleming Island.
