* SHARE of McLean is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff that has been helping people for more than 50 years. SHARE is supported by donations from local religious congregations, community organizations and individuals. The food and clothing room is housed in space donated by the McLean Baptist Church. Programs, year round and seasonal, include family emergency financial assistance, food pantry, used clothing room, recycled furniture, back-to-school supplies and refurbished laptop computers. During the holidays, SHARE also provides neighbors in need with grocery cards and gifts.

SHARE’s CLOTHING and LINEN ROOM is co-located with the Share food pantry in the McLean Baptist Church. Share accepts donations of seasonal clothing, shoes and household linens and provides them free to Share neighbors.
* Clothing donations are sorted by volunteers by size and gender and shoppers are allowed to take what they need.
* We ask that you only donate clothes in-season (i.e. shorts in the summer, coats in the winter) as we do not have much storage space in the clothing room.
* We need volunteers to help manage the clothing rooms every Wednesday and Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete a volunteer interest form. https://www.shareofmclean.org/
* One of the most effective ways to collect needed clothing and linens for Share is to hold a drive at your school, business, community or religious organization. Middle and High School students can receive community service hour credits for organizing a drive.
