Support your local Foodbank and charities
Support your local foodbank. They serve many with very little resources. In my community our food bank is one of many services SHARE provided our community. As many know, I was on the Board of Directors of SHARE for six years, and left last year. I still support their work. Here is a report from SHARE as to what they did this last year.
Last year, 1,308 SHARE volunteers gave 45,231 hours of service in our community: that is like having a medium-sized business with 25 full-time employees doing nothing but good work in our Tri-Cities community, all year.
We know you are often asked to contribute your time and money to support a growing number of worthy causes. There is a great deal of important work that is being done by charities across BC, Canada and around the world. We would like to talk about the difference you make when you choose to support SHARE, where real change happens right here in your home community
SHARE has been serving our Tri-Cities community since 1972. We help people connect with each other, to engage with their community and to strengthen their lives by supporting them in moving forward. We make an important difference in the lives of local children, families, and seniors. We help people who are hungry, children reach developmental milestones, youth struggling with mental health issues, isolated seniors, newcomers and refugees who need settlement support, families who are in crisis and youth and adults struggling with addiction. We build strength in our fellow community members across the Tri-Cities community every day and with your support, we can ensure that this important work will continue.
Please consider making a contribution by visiting our website, just click on "GIVE NOW" button at the top right of the home page and please pass this message along to others who may be able to help.
If you are already volunteering or if you have made a donation of food or funds, please accept our sincere gratitude for investing in the future of our friends, neighbours and families.
If you know someone who may need our help, please encourage them to visit www.sharesocietv.ca
Thank you for considering an investment in our community. Your help makes a difference!
From all of us at SHARE, Happy Holidays and all the best in 2016!
