Spirit of Sharing (S.O.S.) started back in 2000 with the adoption of two families for the holiday season and has grown each year. In 2004 the charity became a 501(c) (3) organization. To date, close to 300 families and well over 700 children have benefited from the caring efforts of S.O.S. and its generous supporters.
Please help us to do more and continue increasing the number of families we are able to help. The primary focus of S.O.S. has always been to provide the elements of the holiday season that a family might not ordinarily be able to enjoy. S.O.S. strives to build a relationship with each family to gain better insight and understanding of individual and familial needs and interests.
Each family is generally provided with several weeks’ worth of groceries and all of the goodies that make the holiday season so warm, comforting, and special. S.O.S. also provides each child in these families with age appropriate and personal gifts including clothing, educational materials, and toys. Each gift is individually wrapped and labeled by our wonderful volunteers and personally delivered at Christmas.
