A Compassionate Response to the Needs of the Poor
Sharing and Caring Hands was established to be a bridge from the caring, concerned community to the people in need of their help. We receive no government or United Way funding and rely solely on donations to do our work. Every year, the donations of goods, services, time, and money by thousands of people allow Sharing and Caring Hands to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and children in need.
Sharing and Caring Hands is a certified 501(c)(3) charitable organization – All donations are tax deductible.
