‘Community Cares for Share’ Events

16 Care for Share_Final_smShare is grateful to the many businesses, faith-based organizations, school and non-profit groups, as well as individuals who donate their time and talents to organizing promotional events that benefit Share.

Most ‘Community Cares for Share’ events are donation drives, for items such as food, clothing, books, etc. But we encourage you to get creative! Click this link for some ideas and a ‘how to’ guide to get started: Community Cares for Share Event Ideas & Details

100 Women Who Care: Supporting Our Backpack Program

100 Women Who Care is a group that consists of 100 women who have committed to donating $100 every quarter.

Each member has the opportunity to nominate a nonprofit to support.  At the quarterly meeting, they draw three names from the stack of nominations.  The person who nominated the nonprofit then has two minutes to tell the group about the nonprofit and then the group votes.

In February, the Share Backpack program was the winner!  They collected $14,000 at their February meeting, but as they collect donations from members who were unable to attend, the total is expected to grow to $20,000.

Plus, through May, 100 Women Who Care will be donating 40% of sales from their One Mission Fundraising to the Share Backpack program. Click the link to shop from a selection of jewelry, purses and inspirational materials.

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.
