On July 9, 2021, the Board of Directors established the Colleen Trask Seaman "Share with OSHaRE" Endowed Fund with the Community Foundation Grey Bruce, with an initial opening gift of $50,000.00.


Named in recognition of for the superlative leadership and dedication of our Executive Director Colleen, the endowed fund has been created to provide an ongoing source of operating funds for OSHaRE in perpetuity.  The fund is now ready to receive your special financial gifts in support of our mission of feeding people in our community.


The need has never been greater: since the start of the pandemic OSHaRE has provided over 157,000 meals to hungry people who have come to our doors.  In addition, OSHaRE has supported individuals who are in emergency housing and those who have been forced to isolate due to COVID.  Wherever the need has presented itself, OSHaRE, its staff and corps of volunteers has stepped up to provide nutritious, filling meals, six days a week, rain or shine.


The best way to make a special gift to the Share with OSHaRE endowed fund.  The best and easiest is to donate on-line through CanadaHelps or through 'Our Donors' page and select the Colleen Trask Seaman Share with OSHaRE Endowed Fund.  Contact the Foundation office at 1-519-371-7203 if you need help.


If you have other questions about OSHaRE and how you can support our mission, please call the OSHaRE office at 519-376-3899.
