Reviews for Project SHARE of Carlisle
Project Share has become a critical pillar of Carlisle - a safety net for our neighbors in need. I have not found a better runow or more worthy non-profit anywhere.
It is a fast and friendly atmosphere with a lot of friendly staff... Thanks for everything!!
Volunteering in the baby room of Project SHARE has been an amazing experience. Everyone who volunteers there is upbeat, happy and very welcoming. They have a great system set up which allows families to get all they need for themselves and even the little ones. I would be honored to be able to volunteer there again in the future.
There is special day each month that I enjoy. It is distribution day when I can come to Project Share and hand out the delicious food to all who come. It is a good feeling that Project Share is there to help those who need a little helping hand. The chance to give a smile and greeting and receive a smile back makes everyone's day a little better. The warm feeling of helping those in need makes you feel like you are part of a caring family.
When I first stated going to Project Share I was so overwhelmed with all the food and the most caring people I've ever met. They made me cry with all their kindness ,smiles and their have a blessed day and even get a hug from time to time.They all made me feel like a real person they all go the extra mile.They are the same today as they were the first time I was there I'm so thankful for Project Share and their staff and all the volunteers and for all the food I receive each and every month
The most remarkable thing about Project SHARE is that it maintains high standards, proving that charitable works don 't have to sacrifice quality. Project SHARE is not interested in filling its shelves with anything anyone calls food. It provides fresh food and helps to build a culture of healthy eating and nutrition. We and our extended family support Project SHARE every year, and we do so without hesitation. There are many non-profits that leave you wondering whether your money goes for its intended purpose. We have never had second thoughts about Project SHARE.
I've volunteered at Project Share since 2007, particularly for distribution days. Elaine Livas lives her faith in reaching out to the community with food, teaching, loving. There are many projects to help the community, including activities for kids in the summer, school supplies, gleaning in the fields during summer. At distribution we're encouraged to give hope to the recipients, give a hug and listen to them. Many volunteers become good friends to them.
I have volunteered at Project SHARE during monthly food distribution. I have also been privileged to hear Elaine Livas speak to my church Missions Committee. Her story and the history of Project SHARE is the most inspirational I have ever heard. To experience Project SHARE is to witness God's love in action.
I have been a volunteer a few times and have been very impressed with how far Elaine has brought Project Share over the years. The amount of people they help and the efficiency of the distribution is impressive. The classes they hold for children and adults to learn how to cook and eat healthy goes above the basic role of just providing food for the hungry . The Carlisle community has rallied around Project Share with individuals and local businesses donating food, money and time.
The services offered at Project SHARE are varied and so very needed in our area!
I've been volunteering for Project SHARE for nearly 10 years, and hope to continue as long as I'm able.
