Share–A–Gift is an all-volunteer, secular annual holiday project that provides toys, books, and bicycles for children of low-income families in the area of Colorado’s Boulder Valley School District. Share–A–Gift is a 501(c)(3) under IRS rules and has operated as a non-profit, all-volunteer organization since 1972 – nearly 50 years.
Despite the difficulties imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2020, we were able to serve over 740 families, representing over 1900 children ages birth to 14, in our community.
In past seasons, Share–A–Gift has relied on donations of new and gently-used toys, books, games, puzzles, and bikes from families throughout the area, with collection events held at schools, businesses, and churches. This year, 2020, with BVSD schools shifting to online-learning and many businesses working remotely, these collections were not possible. Instead, we focused on collecting used bicycles only and purchasing new toys, books, and games in bulk.
If you have supported Share–A–Gift in past years by donating toys or by volunteering your time, we hope you will support us with a monetary contribution. We hope to keep this important event going after this difficult period and return to normal operations in 2021. Gifts of any amount are appreciated!
