Thanksgiving is right around the corner…

“Take the time…SHARE the experience”

October, 2014

Greetings from all of us at SHARE! We have great news and a great cause to celebrate! It’s been a busy summer as we have been making preparations for our signature event coming up in less than two months.

This year on Tuesday, November 25th, 2014, SHARE will be celebrating our 25th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless!! And we at SHARE are very proud of all the students who have helped create the continuum of compassion and understanding along the way.

This year’s dinner is dedicated to these students, to every child who selflessly helped create dinners that have spanned 25 years serving hundreds and hundreds of people.

Our annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless was created as a natural progression from our monthly homeless Midnight Runs. Why NOT gather everyone together, for a warm holiday meal, an evening of joy, of love, of family? Why not? And this, too, grew as the years passed to include men, women and children not just from Manhattan but from all five boroughs, as well as our own Westchester County. At last year’s dinner, where we happily returned to Hastings High School our original home, we served 653 men, women and children and provided enough dinner for seconds with even more leftovers to take home, wherever home happened to be.

And so, as Autumn approaches and the nights cool down, we gladly watch the leaves change colors, as we roll up our sleeves to prepare for what will be our 25th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless, hosted at Hastings High School, a celebratory gathering of the homed and the homeless. Toasting another year together, we will stand, often many hundreds strong, and share a few moments of spirit and of grace as our tireless student and community volunteers serve our guests.

We are a public charity. Our 501©3 number is 01-0944154.

SHARE the Project, Inc. has offered all of our high school age students in Hastings and surrounding Westchester communities an opportunity to extend themselves to people who under no other circumstance would they have an opportunity to meet. It is a program of wide range involvement and all we require is the support of the greater community to help keep our valuable programs available. Please help us continue what has become a tradition for the youth in our area.

In the words of Dr. Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
