Join us in creating positive change by participating in Share Ourselves’ Community Programs! Our diverse events & programs, from providing groceries to awarding scholarships and supporting students through the Back-to-School Program, offer meaningful ways for you to get involved. Embrace the spirit of giving by contributing to Adopt A Family, spreading holiday cheer to families facing economic challenges. Your participation in these programs directly impacts lives, fostering a stronger, more compassionate community. Whether you choose to volunteer your time or support us as a donor, your involvement is crucial in making a difference. Together, let’s create a better future for all.

Education is health! For the past 29 years, Share Ourselves has proudly orchestrated our Back-to-School Program distributing backpacks brimming with school supplies to local students in need. This program has been a cornerstone of our community since 1995, empowering students to start the academic year with enthusiasm and confidence as they embark on a new academic year. At Share Ourselves, we understand that when we support and improve education, it uplifts our entire community. Join us as we prepare students for success this school year.

Education is health! Share Ourselves is dedicated to paving the way for a brighter future by awarding scholarships to college-bound students who are the first generation in their family to attend college. It’s a powerful way to make a real impact on our students’ lives, creating opportunities for success that might not have been within reach otherwise. Your contribution is a step towards empowering these first-generation college students, helping them build a foundation for success and shaping a future where education is a pathway to a better life.

Food is health! At Share Ourselves, we understand the vital role food plays in our community’s well-being. Each day, we make a significant impact by distributing over 400 bags of groceries to patients who are working hard to stretch their food budget. However, on Thanksgiving, we take our dedication to a whole new level. Leading up to this special holiday, Share Ourselves ramps up its efforts, ensuring that over 1,000 bags of Thanksgiving meal supplies reach our community. Join us in spreading the spirit of Thanksgiving by supporting our program and become a vital part of creating a holiday filled with gratitude and community.

Comfort is health! For over half a century, Share Ourselves has been a beacon of holiday joy for Orange County families through our enduring Adopt A Family program. This longstanding tradition has been a source of warmth and generosity, making a meaningful impact on countless families during the festive season. In 2023, 1,200 families were adopted by local donors, businesses, and by Share Ourselves. Join us in spreading the spirit of giving this holiday season!
