Sharing Center Holiday Programs
Each year the Sharing Center provides Christmas gifts to most vulnerable children in western Kenosha county. It is only possible through community support. Last year your generosity provided 400 children with warm clothing, shoes, boots, coats, blankets, and other gifts.
Here’s how you can help
Donor Important Dates: Families, businesses and organizations can pool their resources to adopt a family of children. We’ll give you a detailed list of the greatest needs and wants of your pre-screened child. We request parents identify 3 needed items, often clothing like: jeans, shoes, or sweatshirts, and one educational gift. Most donors spend between $25-60 for each child. Any number of children can be adopted by one individual or group. Some find 2 is enough, others take 30.
Donate new, unwrapped gifts: An alternative to adopting a specific child is to donate new, unwrapped educational gifts, which we will combine with others to help brighten the season for a child who may not have been sponsored. LIST HERE General Gift Donations

Monetary donations: Your donation will buy gifts for un-adopted children, or to help out families who have emergencies around the holidays.
Donate a service: You can donate a service or a gift card, or free coupons such as movie passes; hair cut coupons, tickets to a holiday show, the circus or other family-friendly event.
Tell a friend: Maybe you have already adopted a child or donated to another program; then pass this on to your friends or colleagues.
Want to help a child all year long? Consider a monthly financial donation. Needs don’t end after Christmas. A child in need at Christmas is a child in need all year. Your monthly donation will assure a child’s most basic needs are met for all of 2017.
