Share The Blessings Ministry is a 501(3)c non-profit established in 2010 by our founder Fran Kowalczyk.
Did you know that households cannot use food assistance benefits (SNAP) to buy non-food products such as household supplies and personal hygiene items? Our mission is to provide eligible Charlotte County residents with toilet paper, laundry soap, bleach, body wash, shampoo, toothpaste and mouthwash just to name a few.
We are an ALL volunteer ministry sharing the blessings we receive. We are the first and only charity to provide these services exclusively in Charlotte County. Our program "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a monthly "giveback." We do various fundraisers and submit grants to raise money. Products are then purchased and distributed to over 400 individuals and 150 families at our warehouse. In addition to our monthly distribution we also deliver to several individuals at various facilities. These deliveries are made by our compassionate and dedicated volunteers each month.
We are blessed to partner with Affordable Solona Storage, Waste for Charity, Giving Tuesday, Punta Gorda Housing Authority, Fisherman's Village and Charlotte Community Foundation. We are also supported by many local businesses, non-profits and individuals wishing to help us provide essentials to our neighbors in need.
