SHARING COMES TO LIFE 

 
The Community Sharing Project is a caring local volunteer group committed to serving families and individuals in need living primarily in the Vermont towns of Dorset, Danby, Pawlet, Rupert and Wells. Community Sharing Project gathers gifts of food, new clothing, boots and toys to provide a more bountiful holiday season. We are neighbors helping neighbors through the generous contributions of our donors and volunteers.

"Christmas is the spirit of

giving without a thought

of getting. It is happiness

because we see joy in people.

It is forgetting self and

finding time for others. It is

discarding the meaningless

and stressing the true values."

- Thomas S. Monson

HOW YOU CAN HELP

There are many ways YOU can support our mission to bring a more bountiful holiday to our neighbors:
 

ANGEL TREES - Take an angel (or a bunch!) off the Christmas trees located in many stores, banks and churches in the area.  Each angel lists a specific item of clothing you can purchase for a person and return to us.  These trees will be set-up Thanksgiving weekend.

 

FOOD BASKETS - Donate a food basket. We give you the detailed shopping list, then you shop and deliver a complete basket back to us. Contact Beth Eyre* for the list.

 

TURKEYS - Donate a frozen store-purchased turkey. Please notify Beth Eyre* if you plan to donate a turkey so it may be counted.  

 

TOY DRIVE - Donate a new, unwrapped toy for boys and girls up to age 12. Please, no violent themes.

 

CASH DONATIONS – All cash contributions are used to buy items for all Angels not taken from the trees, to buy new boots and gift cards to Price Chopper, and to fill in where needed.  Please write the check to Community Sharing Project and mail to: Community Sharing Project P.O. Box 263, Dorset, VT 05251

 

ADOPT A FAMILY - To “adopt” a family, you would shop for and donate all the clothes, food and toys for that family. (We still purchase their boots).

 

All 2021 donations are due at Dorset Church by Friday, December 9, 2022.
