Reynolds Field ~ Hastings-on Hudson, NY
April 29th will be our first inaugural Walk for SHARE event! It will take place at Reynolds field. You can find a sponsor sheet at the Community Center or by following this link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/88312468/Project-SHARE-Sponsor-Sheet . Get friends, community members and family members to sponsor you for a number of laps and enjoy an afternoon of leisurely walking around the track with music and food. All donations from sponsors must be presented at the beginning of the event upon entrance so you must determine the number of laps you would like to do beforehand. All proceeds benefit S.H.A.R.E. the Project, Inc.!
S.H.A.R.E. the Project, Inc. was created in 1988 by Jeanne Newman while she was a high school teacher at a public school in Westchester, NY. The group's goal is to involve high school students and youth in community service. In the 23 years since its birth, S.H.A.R.E. has helped guide students toward a clearer understanding of the social responsibilities required to ensure a brighter tomorrow for everyone. By transforming community service into social activism and by changing the idea of service from "requirement" to "choice", we lay the foundation for a culture and a society that is richer in understanding and acceptance of the disenfranchised, the disempowered and the poor. Along with many other service choices, including a partnership with the Midnight Run, Inc., a group that delivers food, clothing, and kindness to New York City's homeless, S.H.A.R.E. hosts an annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless, which serves a delicious, nourishing Thanksgiving Dinner to over 500 men, women, and children from the five boroughs and Westchester. The dinner is run by student volunteers from local high schools, who help to cook, set up, decorate, serve, and clean up. The 300+ students who volunteer each year come away from the experience with a deep understanding of what it is to serve, and for many students, S.H.A.R.E. inspires them to continue a lifetime of community outreach. For its 500 guests, the dinner provides a comfortable, joyful night that shows them that although times are difficult, there are people who care. S.H.A.R.E's programs include "Crossing Borders," an interactive exchange between a suburban high school and an urban high school that is part of the two high schools' extracurricular offerings. We expect our kids to extend themselves beyond their comfort zones in many ways, but always with the concept of social activism and service to the community in mind.
