Since 1985, Project SHARE has provided more than $80 million in necessary assistance to people throughout Georgia. Each year more than 40,000 people affected by illness, job loss or other unfortunate circumstances are assisted through Project SHARE.
How does Project SHARE work?
People in need apply through their county Salvation Army office. The Salvation Army determines eligibility requirements for assistance.
Administered by The Salvation Army, Project SHARE is funded by electric utility customers who donate through their monthly electric bills. Contributions are forwarded to The Salvation Army and allocated for assistance in the county where the donation was made.
Slightly different from our Operation Round Up (ORU) program, funds administered by The Salvation Army’s Project SHARE program may also assist neighbors with basic necessities such as utility bills, food and clothing. To join the network of Neighbors Helping Neighbors, you can pledge a contribution of $1, $2 or $5 each month. The amount you select will be automatically added to your electric bill each month. You can discontinue participation at any time. Simply contact your local district office or unsubscribe online.
