I first became aware of CWC during their 3rd Annual Backpack Giveaway. I volunteered through my employeer to help at the event. I was amazed at what this organization was doing for its youth and community. I wanted to be a part of their mission. I have continued to work with this organization because they are making a difference in this community, believe in their community and seek the success of the youth as well as nurturing the senior citizen community as well.
CWC is a main vein of life in the city of Biloxi and along the Gulf Coast. Working with CWC has allowed me to meet great people from all walks of life, to honoring and serving the Senior Citizens every year at the senior dinner has always and will be one of my most favorite events. Giving for the book bags give away and the community garden brings smiles to Community faces and joy to their hearts Sharon Hanshaw keep up the great work.
It is so much we can say about this wonderful beautiful (young) lady. However, it is not enough space to complete all of what she is to the folks up here in George county. But we will say, may God continue to bless everything Sharon (babygirl) touch and may he bless the circle that he has around her. We will always love this lady. Keep up the good work and keep on smiling and pressing on.
Sending unconditional love to you from the community of Benndale (Lucedale)Mississippi

Sharon Hanshaw is the dynamic leader behind Coastal Women for Change. Her strength is the ability to pull together men and women who actively volunteer. This organization meets the needs of their community. They educate and serve the people of all ages. It began as a disaster relief organization after Hurricane Katrina and developed further as the needs in the community changed. I appreciate their willingness to work with other organizations to expand their ability to provide services.
When I read the article in the newspaper on the Henry Beck community garden needing volunters, it was just what I was looking for. I went to the garden, I loved hanging the children's art work up around the building, all of the kid's painting on the white picket feces. I love the fact that the garden is open to the community to enjoy without fees. Ms. Sharon is involved in many other things within the community, it is empowering not only as a woman but as a resident of Biloxi. We all get busy with our days, our jobs, our families.. I know I have but the time I spent with CWC will be a great memory and I hope to reconnect with Ms. Sharon again soon.
Coastal Women for Change is a great community organization . They touch every facet of community work-children, youth seniors. They had dealt with transitioning from Hurricane Katrina work to the current trends of the coast. whether it's organizing backpacks giveaways, senior computer classes, senior dinners, toys for tots. They are always on the go. I highly recommend this organization for future funding and volunteer opportunities.
I volunteer with many organizations along the Gulf Coast and CWC is one of the best! They take very limited resources and make a huge difference for the folks they serve. Their community garden is incredible and they've helped countless children and families with their backpack give-a-ways.
I've known and worked with Sharon for almost three years now. I have been a part of the community garden, packing and distributing backpacks with school supplies, books for children at Christmas, and moving supplies. This is an organization that really does something for the community and just doesn't talk about it.
The very first time I met a member of CWC, and heard about all the wonderful things that CWC was doing for the community, I immediately joined this organization. My first event was the school supply give away. The backpack were so full of the needed things. I also worked Toys for Tots, an amazing event helping the families bring a smile to their kids faces. CWC is an amazing organization to become a member of. Mrs Hanshaw is an awesome leader. I'm so proud to be a member of CWC.
