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.
Capital City Mall will be the venue for the area’s Canstruction event May 5-13,2017. TEN teams are being recruited for this year’s competition and applications have begun to come in with 5 places still remaining. Canstruction has engineering, architectural, school, church and other teams building structures of cans which we are being donated by a leading supermarket chain, yet to be named. In past years each Canstruction has utilized an average of 2,500 cans in their CAD drawing builds.
M&T Bank, continuing to Understand What’s Important in our community, is sponsoring a matching grant for up to $3,500 for SOUPERBOWL 2017.
Souper Bowl of Caring was founded by a church youth group. It has expanded to many types of groups. Souper Bowl is fueled by those wanting to make a difference in their community. Carlisle has been a leader in engaging youth groups in their own ways of Souper Bowl participation and Project SHARE’s community has benefitted by their creative involvement. We need your youth group to join us! The first step is to register your group’s intent at www.souperbowl.org indicating Project SHARE as your beneficiary.
Since 2003 many local groups have participated in SOUPERBOWL in their own unique and inventive ways. Some have sponsored parties on the day of the other “Superbowl” and collected food and cash donations equivalent to what one would spend on drink and chips. Others have and will be coming up with other ways of engaging youth AND adults in this great SOUPERBOWL tradition. So sign up to help eliminate hunger by being a part of the Souperbowl solution.
