Shepherdstown Shares was formed by the Shepherdstown Visitors Center, the Shepherdstown Community Club, and the Shepherdstown Lions Club to feed federal employees and contractors and Shepherdstown service workers during the government shutdown of 2018-19.
In February of 2020, it was clear that COVID-19 was going to be more dangerous and less predictable than the shutdown, and that it would last much longer. As individuals, we reorganized and widened our circle to include more of the generous, creative, and hard-working people of our area. Shepherdstown Shares is now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.
Shepherdstown Shares exists to respond
to any crisis that threatens the
lives, vitality, and prosperity
of the Shepherdstown community. We provide direct service to individuals and partner with organizations to provides needed services to those in need.
We serve anyone in the zip code,
and often beyond.
