Bringing communities together to help children in need......

Mission

Looking for a way to make a difference in a child’s life? 

Are you one of the many who have felt the need to reach out and make an impact, but don't know how?  Then let me tell you about Wear 'n Share, where communities come together to help children in need.

 

What is Wear 'n Share?

Wear n Share is a clothing ministry run by moms with a desire to help other moms who are struggling to make ends meet. By sharing our children's clothing and giving to families who can use them, our intent is to bring children and families not only hope for a brighter future, but actual change in the outcome of their lives.  We accept donations of new and gently used children's clothing, coats, and shoes and work with organizations, schools, counselors, etc. throughout our local community to get these items into the hands or our local Buffalo families in need.

 

Why donate to Wear 'n Share?

Buffalo is suffering from the 3rd highest poverty rate in the country. There are parents faced with the decision of whether to provide their children with food to live in order to survive another day, or clothing to wear so they can attend their local schools.  Which would you choose?  You have the ability to make it so parents don’t have to choose between nourishment and an education.  By donating to Wear 'n Share you will not only be providing the basics of everyday life, but you will be giving families and children the limitless opportunities that an education creates. 

 

Who does Wear 'n Share impact?

Wear 'n Shares donations go directly to children who are in need in Buffalo and the surrounding areas.  We have helped families in Buffalo, Amherst, East Amherst, Clarence, Lancaster, Lockport, Tonawanda, Cheektowaga, West Seneca and Depew to name a few.  Wherever there is a need in the area, we are here to help.
We are not only working with local organizations, counselors, shelters, schools and churches, but also directly with neighbors in our community who have been impacted by the downturn of the economy or personal tragedies and need assistance.

 

Where can I donate to Wear 'n Share?

We make it easy!  We are located at 9365 Clarence Center Road in the Epiphany UCC Community Outreach Center in Clarence Center.  We have a convenient drive up donation site where you can pull up alongside our building and drop your donations off anytime.
