Subject: Free the SHARE Bear!

As some of you may know,  I am on the Board of Directors for SHARE.  (SHARE Family & Community Services Society,which is a non- profit, independent, community based organization providing leadership and programs in response to the social needs of the residents of the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra), New Westminster and adjacent communities. 

SHARE Family & Community Services exists so that vulnerable individuals and families in the Tri-cities, Anmore and Belcarra have the opportunity to pursue the life they choose.)

I am writing to ask for your help to Feed and Free SHARE Bear. SHARE Bear is hungry and has been looking for food in all of the wrong places and has been caught!

In reality, of course, I'm helping to get the word out that the Food Bank needs support over the summer. As you may recall, it's the time of year where our food supply reaches critical levels and we need your help to feed those who need it most. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 in bail money and 10,000 lbs. of food to get him (and the most vulnerable in the Tri-Cities) through the summer months.  Another great way to give is to bring the family come and free the bear yourself

You’re invited to Feed and Free SHARE Bear 
Where: Coquitlam Centre, H&M entrance.
When: Thursday, June 20th Noon to 6:00 pm.
Goals: Raise $10,000 and 10,000 pounds of food or more.

If you are interested in following SHARE Bear’s exploits, you can also follow us on Facebook.

Thanks again for your help.

PS: Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation and throughout the year, 43% of our Food Bank recipients are children.  If you would like more information on this campaign or about the food bank please contact Kate Lawrence directly at 604.529.5119 or

If you do not live in the Tri-Cities, I would encourage you to support your local food bank as this is a time of year that they need help.
