SHARE applies the drive, empathy, and creativity of students and their families to raise awareness and empower communities.
“Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”
SHARE the Project has been making “good trouble” for over 32 years..Our face mask initiative and food distribution was one of the most recent ways SHARE responded to the changing needs created when COVID-19 became a reality in our lives.
We need you to help us help others. As with so many other worthy not-for-profits, we ask that you consider SHARE and our 32 year history of making “good trouble.” Please donate below.
With love and thanks,
All of us at SHARE the Project, Inc.

THE Student experience
SHARE, based in Hastings-On-Hudson, NY, provides opportunities for high school students to participate in meaningful community service and social justice initiatives. Projects include monthly midnight runs, crossing borders, and the annual thanksgiving dinner for the homeless.
From first time volunteers to our leadership, participants in SHARE are always learning. For high school students, the option to help plan and execute events such as our thanksgiving dinner are rare; but for those who Share, it is a responsibility. Being a part of SHARE allows for volunteers to learn what it's like to work for a real non-profit, gaining valuable experience along the way.
At the core of SHARE is the emphasis we place on forging connections between our volunteers and the people they serve. Before every midnight run, Jeanne, our founder, makes sure to remind participants: "if you come home without having at least one good conversation with a homeless person, you haven't been on a run." For countless volunteers over the course of SHARE's 30 year history, the words exchanged over thanksgiving turkey, pb&j's, and Rob's famous chili have been life changing.
