Vic Dale introduced Julie Boyle and Anita Sheehan from The Caring & Sharing Room, which is a volunteer ministry of The Church of St. Mary. It is supported by churches, organizations, and individuals from the local area. Their mission is to provide furniture and household items in good condition to needy families in Douglas County through referrals from approved community service and crisis agencies. The needs in our community are great and Caring and Sharing needs help in meeting those needs. Monetary donations area also welcome. Please make checks to St. Mary's designated for the Caring and Sharing Room. 
 
Over one hundred volunteers help in one way or another. New volunteers are always welcome. The Caring and Sharing room is open by appointment for donation drop offs Thursday morning from 9-11am at the Cedar Building (formerly the Marian building).
