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.

I am a transplant to Carlisle more than a decade ago and found Project Share as a method to connect with the community. It enriches receipient, employees, volunteers, and donor/supporters in untold ways. Caring, service, passion, and doing the right thing by people are lived values. I suggest Project Share as a service opportunity for all newcomers to the region.

Project SHARE is an anchor in the Carlisle community. The organization was founded to provide families with food and educational resources, treating every person with dignity and kindness. The organization's good work is a model for securing food sustainably, as well, as volunteers collaborate with local/regional farms to glean fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables for distribution. Residents throughout Carlisle rely on the life-changing and life-affirming services provided by Project SHARE--we are a better and stronger community because of their presence.
