household necessities

When a family moves from a situation such as domestic violence, homelessness or successful completion of drug and alcohol addiction treatment into a safe, new home, often they have little of what they need to bring with them. Share A Dream helps a woman and her family get started in their new home by providing some basic necessities.

“Thank you for the Share a Dream basket and household items.  I needed them all as I had all of mine taken from me.  But, not my Hope. Again many thanks to you all.”
Diana, recipient

Our club’s members donate kitchenware such as dishes, pots and pans, utensils and household items such as cleaning agents, paper goods, and trash bags. We assemble them in a laundry basket, bucket and box and add a gift card to fill in the gap for additional items the family may need. Usborne children’s books are also included as an extension of our support for literacy. If you are downsizing and want to make a donation of any of these items, contact us by clicking here. The number of families who have applied for this program has increased substantially. We provide more than 40 baskets annually to serve this community.

This one-time award cannot be given at the same time as our other awards. Candidates for this service are referred by our community and social service agency partners. Click the button below to reach a link to contact one of them.
