S.H.A.R.E. Project

The Sharing Has A Radiant Effect project, or S.H.A.R.E., is a collaboration of local community members who have rallied together to ensure Grand Island’s working poor and near homeless have the goods they need to be successful every day. Since 2012, S.H.A.R.E. has facilitated the collection and distribution of specific NEW items each month—items people go without in times of hardship—through existing helping agencies. For families who cannot afford basic necessities, such as diapers, soap or even toilet paper, the sense of urgency is great.

Please consider SHARE-ING today!
