During the HolyDays, that incorporate Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chanukah, Project SHARE provides special celebratory meals for families to take home and prepare with their circle of loved ones. It is a special part of SHARE’s vision to not only nourish the community but to awaken hope at this time of year.
We invite you to SHARE your table with others by donating $20, $40 or multiples thereof to assist our 850+ families to celebrate the Holidays.
“The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.”
We SHARE our food because we are blessed. We welcome you to join in this most memorable and meaningful ways of giving to others in need during this extended holiday period at the end of a year of joy, trials and hopes for days to come. Bless our families and bless yourself by participating in our Holiday Turkey Dinner Drive.
A truly compassionate person gives a poor person a portion of their meal before they eat, not after they have eaten. So consider helping SHARE families with your thoughful donations leading up and through the Holiday Season.

FOOD DRIVES FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Did you know that for every $1 donated Project SHARE can turn that into $7 to $10 in food? This is due to our ability to purchase food at wholesale rates and below through our various partners. We are also able to leverage donations by networking with food suppliers, farms, orchards and other suppliers and producers of food. Our relationship with trucking firms in the area also brings us bounty that has been rejected for reasons that do not affect the quality of the food.
However we are blessed with many who like and would rather do the tried and true hands-on method of collecting food to donate to SHARE. We are very appreciative of any drives and will do our best to assist you with signage, barrels, Dipjars or other things that will make your campaign a success. We also have a bulletin insert for our congregations. Click here!
In past years we have solicited Holiday bags with a variety of items in each bag. For 2018 we are asking those running Food Drive Campaigns to focus in on certain items that we are in need of. For the HOLIDAYS they would be:
- FROZEN TURKEYS delivered to SHARE
- Canned Yams
- Canned Fruit
- Turkey Gravy
- Stuffing Mix
- Canned Protein (Meat of Fish)
We would ask that deliveries be made by Thursday November 8th. Please note that we will be accepting these donations through the Holidays since our December Distribution will also include special Holiday food portions.
