The Neighbors We Serve
Our neighbors in need are economically distressed families and individuals, seniors living on limited pensions (often facing medical issues), recent immigrants, victims of spousal abuse, and formerly homeless persons.
The neighbors we serve are referred to us by participating faith communities, county social services, and non-profit groups serving special need groups such as victims of spousal abuse or the homeless.
For the fiscal year 2022-2023, Share services supported 1,100 households with over 3,000 family members.
Our Core Values
• We value our clients and treat them with kindness, respect, and generosity.
• We value our donors and are deeply grateful for their charitableness and partnership.
• We think of our volunteers as family and are inspired by their commitment and dedication.
Our vision is to positively impact the lives of our neighbors in need.
Share of McLean is an all-volunteer, community-based nonprofit that teams with individual donors and partner organizations to assist our neighbors who face food insecurity, economic hardships or related challenges.
How We Operate
Share was organized in 1969 to help meet the emergency needs of our neighbors in McLean and nearby areas of Northern Virginia.
Because we have no paid staff, no office, and no paid fundraisers, nearly all donations directly benefit our neighbors in need.
It takes more than 1,000 volunteer hours per month to run our programs, so we are always recruiting new volunteers.
Our food and clothing room is housed is space donated by the McLean Baptist Church.
