Homeless women typically know where to find a safe place to sleep or a hot meal to eat. But when it comes to taking care of their feminine hygiene needs, they often have nowhere to turn.

Tampons and sanitary pads usually top the list of needs at shelters, since they’re pricey and supporters don’t often donate them. Compounding the issue is the fact that clean showers are also scarce, and not washing during menstruation can lead to infections.

The event will include Bloody Mary’s and special food offerings, raffle prizes and auction items. Women need to work together to help women in need. Bring a feminine hygiene product or two, come have a drink and a laugh and make a difference! All products will be donated to Share’s Women’s Housing and Transition Program.

Giving Back to Share: Divine Consign & Boomerang

Two unique ways to give on behalf of Share: Divine Consign & Boomerang.

Throughout the year, Share benefits from the generosity of our community through the donation of new and gently-used items, ranging from jeans & shoes to coffee makers & plates. And we are often asked about the best place for the donation of items such as antique or large furniture, light fixtures, unique decorative items (such as figurines, large vases, artwork, etc.), jewelry & collectibles and more. These are the types of items* that are welcomed at Divine Consign and Boomerang.

Divine Consign is an upscale furniture consignment store, operated by volunteers, turns gently-used donated and consigned furniture into dollars for charities in Southwest Washington.

Two choices can be made when taking home furnishings to Divine Consign:

Make a Donation: Home furnishings can be donated to Divine Consign as a gift; the Donor can recommend a specific organization, including Share, that will receive a share of the proceeds. An in-kind tax deduction receipt will be provided by Gifts For Our Community.

Consign: Home furnishings can be consigned. Consignor receives 50% of selling price; Divine Consign retains 50% of the selling price or will contribute to a charity of your choice, including Share. Per IRS regulations, there is no tax deduction.

To donate or learn more: divineconsignfurniture.org

Boomerang is a generosity shop with a special mission. They sell donated and consigned items of quality at accessible prices, and then give every penny of profit back to local causes.

Here’s how it works: you donate items, Boomerang** sells them at reasonable prices and then splits the process 50/50 with local charities, including Share.

Almost everything in Boomerang has been repurposed, reclaimed, or renewed — from shelves to decorations to every item they’re selling. Boomerang is a 501 (c) 3, so you will receive a receipt for your donated items.

To donate or learn more: boomerangvancouver.com

*Not an exclusive list of items accepted; please contact Divine Consign or Boomerang for a list of accepted items.

**In order to benefit Share with a large furniture donation to Boomerang, the donor must (1) deliver the item(s) themselves or (2) pay for the delivery as part of his/her donation.
