The Sharing Center gets ready for holiday programs

The Sharing Center has released the  following statement about its upcoming holiday food and adoption programs:

It’s that time of year again and The Sharing Center is ever thankful for the continued overwhelming support from the community. Your support allows The Sharing Center to serve over 200 families a month and to serve them well. The new facility, located on Highway C just east of the railroad tracks in Trevor, has space to allow clients to “shop” for their food. Families take what they need with consideration for special needs like allergies and leave what they may not want on the shelf for someone else. Right now, the Center has on hand many of the side items like corn and stuffing that are welcome at the Thanksgiving table. Donors are needed to contribute four items for a complete meal. They are a meat item, a turkey, ham or roasting chicken; potatoes (fresh or boxed mashed) gravy and a frozen pumpkin pie. These items will be placed on the shelves and in the refrigerators for families to take in addition to their regular groceries. These four items may cost about $20, which would make it easier to contribute to more than one family. The families we serve come in all sizes, so both small and large chickens, turkeys and hams are appreciated. Please call the Center at 262.298.5535 more information, or stop in and complete a sponsor form. At Christmas time, the Center will have enough food for meals. Donors will receive a list of gift requests for children of client families. Contact the Sharing Center at 298-5535 to adopt a family for Christmas or for further information. Visit us on the web at The Sharing Center provides a helping-hand to those living in Western Kenosha County by providing food, household items, and education in an environment of respect and dignity. The Center is located at 
25700 Wilmot Road in 
Trevor (Highway C, just east of the railroad tracks) and is open on Monday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. until noon. The pantry is stocked through a combination of government contributions, food reclamation programs, on-site and local gardens and grants. Individual members from the community as well as community groups such as businesses, church groups, youth groups, and civic organizations make sure the shelves are stocked through food drives and charitable contributions. Without the support of the community, the Center could not meet the ever-growing demand for services.”
