#SUMMERSHARECLT GARNERED 1,014 ITEMS FOR 49 CHARLOTTE NONPROFITS

SHARE Charlotte Encourages Continued Giving Through Its “Give Shop”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Aug. 3, 2015) – Addressing a critical time of need for Charlotte nonprofits, SHARE Charlotte created a two-week, summer-giving campaign called #summershareCLT. Reaching more than 2.5 million people, the campaign garnered 1,014 in-kind donations that make a significant impact on local nonprofits’ mission.

From July 13 to July 26, #summershareCLT showcased 49 nonprofits and encouraged the community to purchase essential in-kind donations through the #summershareCLT website.

“We felt like it was important for Charlotte to know about the critical need nonprofits have during the summer, and #summershareCLT was a great opportunity to tell that story,” said Kelly Brooks, founder of SHARE Charlotte. “Neighbors did a wonderful job rallying to the call and have made a significant impact with only a few minutes of time.”

The community donated a diverse range of products including school supplies, food, animal care items, apparel and more. Valued at $11,034, these contributions will reduce operational costs for each nonprofit.

"It can be a challenge for nonprofits to find and engage with new donors, especially those seeking easy ways to contribute yet make a big impact," said Carson Dean, executive director of Men's Shelter of Charlotte. "#summershareCLT has delivered a solution at a time when giving is often at its lowest. We are grateful for the vital work SHARE Charlotte is doing for nonprofits and the community.”
