I've known about the Christian Sharing Center for many years and my wife has been shopping at their thrift store twice a month for years. When we have donations, we always take them there. Beyond the thrift store, they have a food bank, provide critical financial assistance, have a medical clinic and have an "Oasis" where the homeless can shower, use a computer and get other critical services. Because 90% of their income goes to provide services to those in need, I decided to volunteer.

For 6 months now I've interacted with many of the staff and I've found all of them are genuinely empathetic and caring individuals. I have witnessed several incidents of help being given. I am proud to be volunteering, helping them with their retail sales, which in turn allows them to help more needy people.

The Sharing Center has created a streamlined, living center to help our community.

In April, I called to donate pieces of furniture and household items. My items were picked up in the time frame which they gave me.

Their employees that pick up were courteous even though they had been picking up and unloading all day. They showed respect with my donations by handling them with care as they loaded them into the truck.

Their operations are superb. Their staff genuinely wants to help. I have been a community leader, worked in Orlando for 34 years, and the Sharing Center is #1 on my list to tell my neighbors and colleagues.

Another one of their jewels in addition to their staff and operations is they provide showers and washing machines for people in need to use! People and families in need go directly there to wash their clothes and to take a shower.

The Sharing Center is superb from the president down to the warehouse. Every interaction
I have had with them has been positive.

Where ever God plants us, he instructs us to grow...........from the food pantry on CR 427) across from the Longwood fire tower (my earliest memory) to the present location and all of it's programs. What a ministry! And it doesn't take much for any one to be a giver (think widow's mite) and share in the joy.

Staff, volunteers, and donors all have a compassion for all people and it shows! May God continue to bless the Christian Sharing Center.

(I really like the pictures of merchandise in the newsletter. Class act!)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that in the near future there will be money for operating expenses and enough volunteers to extend the week day hours for those parents who work.

The Christian Sharing Center follows its mission by treating everyone who walks through its doors with respect, compassion and dignity. Working with these wonderful people helps me to remember that we are all brothers and sisters before the Lord, called to serve Him by serving each other.

Every time I attend a meeting or event at the Sharing Center, I am reminded why I chose to be affiliated with this mission in the first place. This organization is truly “faith” based as everything that happens at the Sharing Center has an element of trust in God’s will, with the understanding that God provides for the needs of his people in the community through the generosity of the people in the community. This is one of the most efficiently run organizations I have ever been involved with; they are good stewards of the funds and supplies they have been entrusted with.

And as a bonus, the Thrift Store is a really great place to find some really awesome pieces at bargain prices. Check it out!

With the highest regard for each individual, The Christian Sharing Center offers help and hope to thousands of people every year. If The Sharing Center were a single person, it would be the friend and neighbor who is never too busy, always offers a kindness, and lifts up all who comes her way, sharing a glimpse of the Kingdom of God.

The heart of this amazing program is obvious in every facet of its outreach. Every visitor and client to The Sharing Center leave with not only economic, medical, food, shelter and other resource assistance, but also with a renewed faith in the generosity of others and encouragement in their own abilities to navigate life's challenges. The staff of The Sharing Center are wholly dedicated to the service of our community. I am always impressed by the tireless effort exhibited in the continual effort to offer vital care to those whose struggles are overwhelming them.

If you haven't been to the Sharing Center's newly remodeled Thrift Store, you are missing some great bargains on quality items. recently, the store had brand new designer clothes that were donated to it from a well-known department chain...at 50% OFF!

With over a decade of volunteer and board service, I know the mission of The Sharing Center is providing much needed help to thousands of our neighbors every year for food, clothing and assistance to meet their challenges during temporary periods of hardship. The stewardship, care and compassion of our dedicated staff and volunteers is making a great positive impact for the members of our community.

The Sharing Center is a wonderful organization that I am proud to serve as a board member. Seminole County, FL has long been known as an affluent county and a great place to live, however, that does not make us immune to the hardships that are facing many cities and counties across the country. The Sharing Center does a great job of bringing these issues to the attention of the city officials and residents. The caring staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help the underprivileged of our community and are making a real difference in the lives of the people we serve.
