help and hope
Project Share provides help for the holidays for families and individuals living in ISD 200.
Receiving Project Share
Project Share is available for eligible families and single adults living in Hastings School District 200 by appointment only. Appointments for Project Share 2017 can be scheduled in late October.
Giving Project Share
Project Share is made possible by the generosity of the community. There are many ways to spread holiday cheer to your neighbors in Hastings.
Volunteers help register families, pack and distribute food, and help families select gifts. Volunteers may sign-up for a one time opportunity or volunteer multiple days during the holidays.
Share the joy of the season by adopting a family. Get together with friends, co-workers, family, or spread the joy by yourself by fulfilling a family's wish list. Please read our Adopter Guideline and FAQsfor full program details.
Families will be available to adopt in mid-November 2017.
Gift Trees are hosted by area churches and businesses. The host sets up a tree or other display and gift wishes are put on it for community members to select. Gift items are then brought back to the host site or directly to Hastings Family Service. If you are interested in hosting a Gift Tree for Project Share 2017 please call us at 651-437-7134.
Single adults and families who do not sign up in time to be adopted are able to select gifts from the "North Pole" at Hastings Family Service. We appreciate having gifts on hand to provide to those families. Gift for adults and teenagers are a particular need.
Provide a Holiday Meal
Food is provided to nearly all households receiving Project Share. Please consider making a donation of $30 to cover the cost of a holiday meal for a neighbor in Hastings.
