For ten years I have lived in Carlisle, and before that thirty years in nearby Boiling Springs. I have known Project Share since in its inception. Its founder, Ms Livas, is an actual paragon. Project Share is a power for good. It provides direct and significant benefits to people in our Carlisle community.

For me Project Share’s mission is simple and basic: eliminate hunger in our Carlisle community. Uncertain mathematics aside, one numerical figure is well established nationally - twenty percent of our children and seniors endure hunger every day. Think about that for a moment.

Project Share programs not only distribute food, but also provide educational cooking and nutrition classes. I personally want to thank Project Share volunteers for your time and wide-ranging knowledge and experience. It is a sizable commitment. Yet I hope you find the results are far more rewarding than most other volunteer positions. Without your support, Project Share will not thrive and improve.
