Winter Outerwear Collection

Kids In Coats Cropped

Community Sharing annually collects new and gently used coats and boots for both adults and children as well as snow pants for children of all ages.

Please wash or clean items and deliver in either a paper bag, on hangers or in a box (no plastic, please).


Christmas Program

Joy Of Giving Web

Community supporters are asked to donate gift cards from Target, Walmart or Meijer in denominations of their choice.  The gift cards are then provided only to clients with children and after case workers verify the family's need.  Parents are then able to purchase appropriate Christmas gifts for their children and cheerfully celebrate the holiday because community members cared about their neighbors.

Summer Lunch For Kids

Watermelon Summer Little Girl Eating Watermelon Food
We have many client families with children who rely on the breakfast and lunch program provided in school and may struggle with getting enough food during the summer. Community Sharing is helping to fill that void by supplying kid-friendly lunches throughout the summer. Volunteers package lunch for each client's child and distribute to families when they visit the food pantry.
We need the following items throughout the summer to make summer lunch packs:
Kraft Easy Mac packets/cups
Individual snack chip bags
Granola and Nutri-Grain bars
Non-perishable Fruit snacks
Cookie packs, lunch size
Cheese & Cracker packs
Fruit Cups, Jello cups and Pudding cups
Canned ready to eat pasta
Donations can be dropped off at the pantry Mon-Thurs 10am-1pm. 🛒
If it is easier, we have an Amazon Wish List link on our Donate page. Just click the Amazon icon.

Please drop off items M-Th 10am-1pm at our office.  You can also DONATE through our website, but be sure to indicate the General Fund donation is for Back-to-School. Checks (Back-2-School in memo) are welcome, too!
