Share The Blessing is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families in need - and who live in Susquehanna Valley - enjoy the holiday season. We facilitate this through the collection of food, clothing, gifts and monetary donations that are used, in full, to provide hope and assistance to local families during a very blessed time of the year.
Launched in 2004 as a community outreach project by David Ober, general partner of Rockvale Outlets, Share The Blessing has grown from the sincere desire to provide for individuals and families in crisis into a Central Pennsylvania-wide initiative. Over the past five years, Share the Blessing has gained the support of many local residents and families seeking to give back to their own community - having raised more than $375,000 for families and individuals in need.
The campaign invites residents of Susquehanna Valley to nominate individuals or families living in the Lancaster community who are in need of extra care and attention this holiday season.
Nominations should focus on local families in crisis or need; all individuals/families nominated and/or selected will remain anonymous to honor their privacy. Past nominations have included families undergoing many forms of personal hardship - from those battling disease and crisis, to those displaced or estranged from family due to natural disasters and the War on Terrorism.
