Shepherdstown Shares

Shepherdstown SHARES exists to respond to any crisis that threatens the lives, vitality, and prosperity of the Shepherdstown community. We serve anyone in the zip code, and often beyond. For more information about this group and how you can help, go to shepherdstownshares.org.

Listed are their September projects:

We need two things from you, PLEASE. We need you to VOLUNTEER and we need you to DONATE! We are on the fast track in developing our Food Pantry, so we need people to help us out in a variety of ways—organizing, packing bags, distributing food bags at Trinity Chapel, etc. Send an email to ShepShares@gmail.com to express your interest and we will give you a call! Our second request of you is that we need you to DONATE. The needs are increasing, and we need to constantly keep an eye on our bottom line. You can donate through PayPal (search for Shepherdstown Shares) or drop a check off at JSB. For more information, refer to our website, shepherdstownshares.org.

Shepherdstown Shares Share Your Change initiative will continue each Sunday during the Farmers Market hours for the Fall season. Thanks to our community’s generosity we have already collected close to $1300 to feed those who are experiencing food insecurity during COVID-19. Our table is located next to the library. As always, you can donate during the week by bringing your change to JSB and ask that it be deposited in the Shepherdstown Shares account.

Now is the time for Fall garden and yard cleanup so contact shepshares@gmail.com to participate in our Work4Workers program. If you need no-contact outdoor work done, we have those who are willing to work! Please go to our website shepherdstownshares.org and check it out. There is a simple form to complete and ShepShares board member Annie Wisecarver will contact you.

If you know if someone in need in our 25443-zip code area, please let us know or encourage them to contact us. We will do our best to help. We continue to spread support and love in our community as the virus spreads.
