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

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.
I've volunteered at Project Share since 2007, particularly for distribution days. Elaine Livas lives her faith in reaching out to the community with food, teaching, loving. There are many projects to help the community, including activities for kids in the summer, school supplies, gleaning in the fields during summer. At distribution we're encouraged to give hope to the recipients, give a hug and listen to them. Many volunteers become good friends to them.
I have volunteered at Project SHARE during monthly food distribution. I have also been privileged to hear Elaine Livas speak to my church Missions Committee. Her story and the history of Project SHARE is the most inspirational I have ever heard. To experience Project SHARE is to witness God's love in action.
The services offered at Project SHARE are varied and so very needed in our area!
I've been volunteering for Project SHARE for nearly 10 years, and hope to continue as long as I'm able.
Project Share is a great organization. Every client and volunteer is treated with respect. They Not only provide food to those who need it, they also teach people about proper nutrition and provide school supplies to children.
Project Share is a wonderful organization serving Carlisle and the surrounding area. The staff and volunteers are some of the most caring individuals I've ever encountered. The services they provide extend much farther than a food bank. They provide services for children, including 'Kids in the Kitchen' to show children how to prepare nutritious food, and a summer reading program as well. They provide nutrition information and food preparation classes for adults as well!
Project share is an amazing place to volunteer. My football team would go to the distribution every time we could and after going a while I registered to volunteer there. Everyone at project share is like one big family and every event they hold is a great opportunity to get out and help the community
Project share is a wonderful place to volunteer! I have been volunteering in the kitchen for 2 years and I love it. We prepare meals for children in the summer. And tasting recipes for recipients during distribution. There are canning classes, Kids in the kitchen and much much more. it is a great place to meet and work with other folks and meet and greet the recipients.
I have the blessed opportunity to volunteer for Project SHARE for over 10 years. The rewards of compassion and appreciation have been numerous beyond words. To help others in their time of need has deepened my love for mankind. We are here on earth to help others. Project SHARE is an expression of that help and love for others.
I have volunteered at Project Share for over 25 years. It is a respected nonprofit in Carlisle and works well with other nonprofit agencies in town. I have made many friends with the staff and other volunteers at Share. I continue to work at least one morning each week and during distribution week work with a group of volunteers helping with the home delivery program several days. I feel privileged to be able to give back to the community by helping at Project Share
Project SHARE not only offers food to folks who are food insecure, it also offers reading support, breakfast, and lunch to school children during the summer months. This wonderful organization utilizes the talents of volunteers in extremely creative ways to meet the needs of our diverse Carlisle, Pa community.
Project Share is much more than a food bank! While it DOES deliver great food, both to folks who can come to the Distribution AND to folks who need the food to be brought to them, Project Share is a place where folk come, knowing they will be accepted, encouraged, appreciated, and taught skills that will count - from the "Kids In The Kitchen" workshops to the "PET" project making personal transportation bikes for people overseas. In a tiny town, it's a giant example of what Americans can do to move America toward the dreams we all share for a fair deal for every person. ... As for "role" (below), my wife and I are Volunteers and Donors - and I play piano during Distribution.
Everyone is very caring when helping individuals with food etc. The staff goes above and beyond their duties.
Review from Guidestar
Consistently serving and supporting our community. I've volunteered for SHARE, but I'm also a community member who hears the great work of this organization. Once I met a woman on the street who said she had no formula for her baby. I got on my cell phone and called SHARE. She received what she needed for her child before the end of the day. SHARE is more than a food pantry, it is a part of our community that has literally brought people together from all walks of life to express care and support each other. Excellent non-profit.
Project Share is a faith based organization whose only focus is to feed and clothe those in need. Workers and volunteers wear tennis shoes and show up prepared to work and help their neighbors. Whether you give them four days a week or an hour of your time, you can find something you are able to do and the other volunteers, staff and recipients will appreciate your help.
Project Share meets a huge need in the Carlisle community providing food and clothing to approximately 1200 families a month. During my volunteer time I see the compassion for the recipients and witness recipients who are truly appreciative of the services this organization provides. Kudos and hats off to Project SHARE.
