COVID-19 CHANGES TO SERVICE EFFECTIVE APRIL 1. 202026 Mar 2020
Effective Wednesday April 1, 2020 residents of Niagara Falls who live below the poverty line can access Project SHARE's emergency food program for one regular monthly pick up and one bonus pick up for a total of two visits per month. Project SHARE will provide increased amounts of produce during both monthly visits while food donations permit, so while the number of visits will be reduced the goal is for the amount of food received to remain the same. This change in client service visits is in an effort to reduce the number of people coming to Project SHARE on a daily basis to prevent community exposure to COVID-19.
Client service hours are 10:00am to 3:00pm Monday through Friday. Clients will still be required to register at the front door of Project SHARE. Clients who need to discuss utilities or other needs with a Client Support Worker may do so by calling 905-357-5121 and asking to speak with a Client Services staff member.
The Out of the Cold shelter operated by Project SHARE at St. Andrew's United Church is operating on a 24-7 basis until Thursday April 9, 2020, the day it was scheduled to close for the season. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is unknown at this time if the closure date will be extended.
Over the coming weeks Project SHARE is anticipating an increase in need for our services. Donations are still being accepted with much gratitude. There are a number of ways to donate. Food is needed and can be dropped off at the back door of Project SHARE. You can also help by making a monetary donation by calling 905-357-5121 ext. 27 and providing your credit card number or by visiting our website at www.projectshare.ca/donate. Project SHARE can purchase food at bulk prices and your donations at this time will help us continue to feed the most vulnerable in our community.
At this time Project SHARE is not accepting donations of household goods or clothing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to monitor the unfolding situation and will act accordingly. Please watch our social media for updates on our services.
