VOLUNTEER

We are proud to support Sharing Connections as our 2024 non-profit partner. The families served by SC include the previously homeless, unemployed and working poor, veterans, victims of domestic violence, immigrants, individuals with mental or physical disabilities, victims of fire, flood and natural disasters, etc.

 

They have housing, but are faced with the harsh reality that their “home” is empty or severely under-furnished – without cribs and beds for the children, a table, chairs and dishes to share meals, or even a sofa to sit on and relax.

 

SC clients have an average salary of approximately $12,400 a year for a family of four. After basic expenses such as rent, utilities, food and clothing are paid, there’s little if anything left for the common household furnishings most take for granted. These individuals and families must overcome many obstacles on their way to self-sufficiency.

TAKE A TAG FROM THE TREE OF HOPE

On November 22, we will illuminate our 9-foot "Tree of Hope," filled with wish tags that you can grab to help make sure every kid gets what they want from Santa this year. Gifts must be dropped off by December 5th so we can bring them to Sharing Connections to distribute as part of their 15th Annual Toy Program. (More info in Oct.)

Craft at home or come by one of our Sip 'n Stitch nights on Mondays starting in Sept to stitch for hope with fellow crafters! (More info closer to Sept.)
