Donate to our ‘Seats & Feets’ Drive

Three needs that are ever present at Share are those for new underwear, diapers and socks.

Throughout the month of October, Share is asking for:

  • new underwear (all sizes, for men, women, teens and children)
    For those that donate underwear, we ask that you keep in mind that a range of sizes is needed, from small to 3XL.
  • diapers (sizes 5 & 6, plus pull-ups)
  • athletic-style socks ((all sizes, for men, women, teens and children)

Donations can be brought to the Share Fromhold Service Center by appointment only—contact Kelly Baumann at kbaumann@sharevancouver.org.

Don’t have time to shop? Make a donation online and direct your contribution to our ‘Seats & Feets’ drive.

Host a ‘Seats & Feets’ drive! Organize a socially distant drive at your office, church or in your neighborhood. We can provide you with a blue Share barrel in which to collect your donations. Contact Kelly to get your drive started.

On #GivingTuesday, Help Us Raise $10k for a Steamer for Share Hot Meals

This #GivingTuesday, help us raise $10k to purchase a new steamer for our Share Hot Meals program.

Donate on December 1st by clicking here. (Select ‘#GivingTuesday’ under Donation Program Designation)

Share Hot Meals provides daily, free to-go meals to our community — and the need for meals has increased 133% since the pandemic hit in February. Each month, the Hot Meals kitchen is preparing and serving more than 8,600 meals.

Now more than ever it is critical that Share safely and efficiently operate our Hot Meals program. People accessing meals include those
experiencing homelessness, as well as individuals and families whose ability to cover daily living expenses — food, rent, utilities, clothes for growing children — are strained by layoffs, furloughing and decreased work hours as the local, regional and national economies continue to struggle.

Your gift will provide children and families, men and women with access to warm, nutritious food through the upcoming winter months and beyond.
