Project SHARE is an interfaith, non-profit cooperative effort that has been serving the community since 1985. Project SHARE helps the hungry by providing supplementary food on a monthly basis to residents of the greater Carlisle area.
What is gleaning? Gleaning is described several places in the Bible. It is when the growers permit the poor to gather the remains to feed their families. It was also a common practice in the Middle Ages in Europe. In our region many local farmers and orchards invite us to SHARE the bounty of the harvest after they have picked their fields. What we are able to gather is miraculous.
GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving. It’s a simple idea. On Tuesday, November 29, just find a way for you, your family, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. The success of GivingTuesday depends on the collective efforts of all of us. We can prove that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back.
There are special events year round that serve many purposes. The first is our bonding with one another as a community engaged in the good works of Project SHARE. The joy of the events and the participation fills and links each of us. Fundraising events also help our mission. Some events are organized by Project SHARE while others are done on our behalf.
