I received help from Project Share or some form of it 1986 until 2005. It has been built on the back of Elaine Livas and all her hard work over the years. The food we received was a far cry in quality and quantity from what they provide now. The breadth and depth of the community involvement with Project Share seems to grow every month. Now they have a permanant home that houses a clothing bank, storage facilities for cost saving and bulk buying, and community connections and support of all kinds. They truly provide Self Help And Recipient Education (SHARE). Now that I have been able to get myself into a more stable lifestyle, I am now a donor and occasional volunteer. Thank you Elaine and Project Share!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the kindness and caring of the people associated with Project Share.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
mostly the most kind and caring people you could meet. The kind of people that I know make up our wonderful community.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
with Elaine's help, feed the world!!
