Sharing and Caring Hands provides a bridge from the caring concerned community to the people in need of their help.  They receive no government or United Way funding and rely solely on donations to do their work.   Every year, the donations of goods, services, time and money allow Sharing and Caring Hands to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and children in need.
