We are so thankful for the continued support of our community during these incredibly trying times. We hope you will still be able to help as we prepare to support over 1,000 individuals and families this holiday season.
Join us in spreading Holiday Cheer... Throughout the Year! by helping to provide gifts, essential items that are most requested by our clients, and gift cards to our supportive housing programs, guests in our emergency shelters, unaccompanied youth, and low-income families in the school districts. In addition, we will distribute essential items such as toiletries, tents, tarps, and sleeping bags to our neighbors that are living outdoors unsheltered. We are also focusing on building a stock of items needed throughout the year through our Request for Items Program, which supports clients moving into shelter and into permanent housing.
The “gift of choice”: Gift cards provide individuals and families with the opportunity to purchase items on their own—this can relieve personal anxiety and boost self-esteem as they are given the lead role in selecting foods to prepare their holiday meal as well as help with finding just the right gifts to give their child, spouse, parent or filling basic household needs.
Holiday Cheer Program options this year include:
- Amazon Charity List: You may share our Amazon Charities Holiday Cheer Wish List with your team so that individuals can shop from a distance and ship directly to Share’s Donation Warehouse. You may also shop online at local stores and ship directly to Share. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/charitylist/ls/23N9IXEH8WPLL/ref=smi_ext_lnk_lcl_cl
