AFTER 25 YEARS, THE FINAL S.H.A.R.E. PROGRAM DISTRIBUTION
The S.H.A.R.E. (Self-Help and Resource Exchange) food and community service program will hold its final Distribution Day on September 25. The Board of Directors of New River Community Action (NRCA), which sponsors the local S.H.A.R.E. program, took action at its September 16 meeting to end the project due to declining participation and rising operating costs. According to Terry Smusz, NRCA Executive Director, "It is with much regret that NRCA is forced to end our S.H.A.R.E. program, a significant component of this agency's "hand up" and self-help mission for more than twenty-five years."
