Join our grass-roots program and Sponsor-A-Shelf! It's a new way to help fill the pantry shelves at Community Sharing.
We ask that businesses, organizations, and families make a commitment to fund the purchase of needed item(s) for one, three or twelve months. For your reference there is a list of items that are most popular yet costly to fill our shelves.
Community Sharing will stock the shelf. As a token of our thanks we will post a note about your generosity on our Facebook page, which has over 1800 followers. In addition, your name will be listed on our website as a sponsor during your sponsored timeframe.
Note: If you are interested in purchasing name brand items, please use the chart below as reference for your desired quantity/donation and we will be arrange delivery details with you.
