SHARE Outreach in Milford nears end of capital campaign

To the Editor:

SHARE is five months into our capital campaign to raise funds to renovate and expand our food pantry and to add a 2,300-square-foot addition to our building at 1 Columbus Ave. in Milford.

I am pleased to report that we have received donations and commitment totaling almost 90 percent of our projected cost. While there is still a gap to close, the board is sufficiently confident that the remaining funds will be obtained and, pending approval by the town of Milford, we will begin construction this spring.

The board and staff of SHARE are pleased and gratified by the support of the residents, businesses and faith and service organizations in the communities we serve. We recognize that raising funds in this economic climate is a challenge and we deeply appreciate this commitment of resources to help us fulfill our mission.

With one month remaining in our campaign, we still have a $30,000 gap to close and those interested in making a donation to SHARE can do so by sending a check to SHARE Outreach Inc., 1 Columbus Ave., Milford, NH 03055. Please denote capital campaign. Or make an online payment at www.share

On behalf of all at SHARE, we thank those who have responded for your generosity and support.
