Bringing Warmth to the Hungry and Homeless of Carlisle, PA

About Sweaters & Sustenance: Carlisle

The Reason: The picturesque campus of Dickinson College is a place dedicated to service and learning with the motto of “engage the world.” Volunteerism and civic engagement are a long-held tradition, resulting in many good works for the Carlisle community and beyond. While the beauty of Carlisle, Pennsylvania is welcoming and warm, some may be surprised to learn that there are many in the community who live with food instability or are homeless and in great need.

The Partnership: Sweaters & Sustenance: Carlisle will be working to support Project SHARE, a cooperative food pantry with the mission to provide food and nutritional education to the hungry of Greater Carlisle. Sweaters & Sustenance will collaborate with groups on Dickinson’s campus, as well as engage alumni, in order to make a lasting impact in the lives of the families that Project SHARE serves in the Carlisle community.

Get Involved

Donations to Sweaters & Sustenance: Carlisle will directly impact the lives of the families benefiting from the service of Project SHARE.

A donation of $40 will provide a full Holiday dinner to a Carlisle family in need this Christmas and Holiday season.

Every little bit helps in providing the hungry and we are so thankful for your generosity.

If you are interested in joining the Sweaters & Sustenance team in Carlisle to distribute Christmas and Holiday dinners to those most in need, please contact us directly through our Contact page!


We are planning on joining Project SHARE on TBD.
