The donation of new and gently-used goods is vital to serving Share’s clients.

From clothing and personal hygiene items to non-perishable and fresh food, these donations allow us to feed, clothe, furnish homes and so much more for our clients as they move along the path to self-sufficiency. And every donation allows us to spend our funds on providing increased services and programs.

Donated items must be new or gently used (as noted). All items must be clean and in good working condition (fully-functioning); free of rips, stains and/or pet hair.
