Reviews for Project SHARE of Carlisle

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became aware of Project SHARE in 2001. I started as a volunteer. I helped some with distributing food and gleaning. I have fond memories of getting to know staff and other volunteers. What moved me was the profound love modeled by the staff. Our community is blessed to have an organization that pours into the lives of other people as they do. Now, I serve as a volunteer, as a donor, and as a member of the board. This is truly a mission focused organization.

Recently I found myself in a very dire situation.
I'm going through a divorce. My grocery budget from $400.00 (when married) to $0.
With God, I had to push through my pride and humiliation to reach out for help.
Project Share readily approve my application. I now can eat with out having to worry about where my next meal will come from.
Project Share staff & volunteers does treat me with compassion and respect when I go for for food.

I never thought I'd be in this position.

I plan to pay it forward by volunteering @ Project Share I get my personal in order.

Project Share and all their staff and volunteers are amazing! Elaine Livas is the "Mother Teresa" of nonprofits. After seeing and hearing Elaine speak at several events, I approached her and asked her if she could give me a few ideas that would help our organization reach the same level of professionalism that Project Share has attained. Elaine and her staff literally opened up their doors, arms and hearts and have gone above and beyond to assist. Elaine instilled the confidence I needed to make major changes in our organization in order to assist our clients more efficiently and respectfully. Somehow, with their busy schedule, Project Share still has the time to assist other organizations who are serving the needy. They are truly a blessing to all. My sincere thanks!

My wife and I first volunteered through the Church. Afterwards my wife continued to help pretty much ever week. We both tried for every holiday meal.

Project Share was a well organized event that relies on volunteers.

We are now stationed back at Fort Stewart, and miss our time in Carlisle!

Best of luck

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.

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.
