In 2018, Sharing Place provided more than 4,000 meals to many of the neediest and loneliest people in Warren County. While many of theses meals were “paid for” with warm smiles, words of thanks and appreciation, we are always grateful for material and financial support.
Your generosity will make a significant difference in the lives of each and every one of these people. Your generosity will make a significant difference in the quality of life in Warren County.

You may already know that the Hooktown Holidays 2018 Garage Sale was the biggest and best ever! There are just not enough words to express our thanks for your support or to say how much this means to our community. So, we made a short video that gives you an idea of the fun everyone had, the amazing amount of merchandise that was donated and how willing our Hooktown Holidays neighbors were to share their yards for this event. You didn't just make a donation by purchasing...YOU made a difference!
If I told you how many wonderful treasures we have in store for our 5th Annual Garage Sale fund raiser, you might not believe me. If I could share the details of all of the wonderful people who have donated these items, you would be amazed at their generosity. In fact, we had to, and were lucky to find, a much larger storage facility this year in order to house everything until the sale. Be sure to mark the date on your calendar...August 25, 2018 from 8:30AM until 2:00PM. Right here in the Hooktown Holidays Neighborhood...1201 Conewango Avenue and the surrounding neighbors.
