Sharing Life COVID-19 Relief Grants:
Our deepest appreciation goes to the following funders for their generous grants allowing Sharing Life to meet its increased needs during this COVID-10 pandemic. These grants will allow Sharing Life to continue providing nutritious food to thousands of people each week via our drive-thru distribution system. We appreciate the support as we strive to alleviate hunger in Southeast Dallas, Rockwall, and Kaufman Counties. Thank you so much for partnering with Sharing Life during this critical time! We could not do what we do best without the support of such wonderful entities.
