It’s a wrap, friends! 💃🏻
▫️◽️▫️◽️▫️◽️▫️◽️▫️◽️▫️
Backpacks, headphones, earbuds, water bottles, Clorox & Kleenex, school supplies- all distributed to Benton County’s schools that are most in need. From Rogers & Bentonville to Decatur, Gentry, Gravette & Siloam. AUGH! 😍

In case you missed it, we were able to DOUBLE our impact from 2020. 4️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ backpacks were filled + countless other supplies given away.

…& it’s all because of YOU.
T H A N K Y O U for showing up for the kids & the village that works tirelessly to lift them up. It was such a blessing to speak to each of these teachers, counselors & social workers who not only have a heart for your kiddos but also know them SO WELL! 🤍

Happy Monday, friends.❤️

✨ Board of Directors Announcement ✨
Friends, give a warm welcome to one of our newest board members Tiffany Lowe! Tiffany has been a long time supporter of Sharing & Caring and is currently the Director of Program Management in People Operations at Walmart.

A little more about Tiffany:

"Advancing racial equity, educating others on allyship, and promoting diversity and inclusion are priorities for me in the spaces where I have influence. Additionally, I commit my efforts & time to organizations & programs that support empowering women, youth mentorship & health initiatives. A self-proclaimed “candle lighter,” I’m devoted to developing others to reach their absolute fullest potential. I love watching people advance personally & professionally, and take pride knowing I’ve been a part of their story.

I’m a boy mom to two amazing sons. My baby, Avery, graduated from UARK last year. My oldest son, Tre’, is married and is the father of my two favorite humans, Everly Kay & Emilia Rose. I am married to my husband, Mike, who I share not only my life but also my birthday with. We have a Goldendoodle named Foster who is very spoiled and has no idea that he is a dog. I’m a lover of old school jams, nine-ounce pours, romantic comedies & difference makers."

We are so excited for you to officially be a part of the Sharing & Caring family, Tiffany, and are so grateful for all of the goodness you bring to the board! 🤍 #allforthekids #ittakesavillage #NWA #community #nonprofit

Enhancing Lives & Empowering Futures in Benton County

Sharing & Caring’s flagship mission is helping underprivileged children of Benton County experience the joy of Christmas. Through the help of our sponsors we provide clothing, shoes, toys, a food box, essential household goods and special needs to approximately 3,500 children every Christmas. Each child who is served through our program is shopped for individually.

Aside from our Christmas program, Sharing & Caring works to support Benton County’s youth throughout the year. From back to school supplies to winter coats and more, we work to fill the gaps where our families need it most. We also provide scholarships to high school students for college credit and trade courses to set them up for success upon graduation.

Sharing & Caring serves underprivileged, Benton County children from ages 0-18 or until they’re no longer enrolled in Benton County schools. Our goal is to provide hope & opportunity to Benton County’s underprivileged youth to promote confidence and encourage self-sufficiency.

Sarah Semrow was very sneaky this week and Goosed us! The neighbors loved it! Having been involved with this organization for nearly 18 years, as as we hosted enrollment and passing out the toys at The Boys & Girls Club years ago, we love what Sharing & Caring does for the community and families in NWA. Thanks for making such a difference! #nwagotgoosed, #GooseForTheKids.
