Caring & Sharing of South Walton was established to provide a resource to assist local families in need.


Caring & Sharing of South Walton provides food and assistance to local residents with the support of churches, civic groups, individuals, and businesses.

Sales in the Thrift Store cover operating expenses and generate funds to help clients with food, prescriptions and utilities.

Items for sale in the Thrift Store include clothing, housewares, bedding, furniture, electronics and books.

The Thrift Store and Furniture Warehouse are open 6 days and are staffed by many volunteers who work to display, sort, sell and assist with the store operation.
In addition to yearlong assistance, Caring & Sharing also has special projects for Back-to-School, Thanksgiving, Christmas including Angel Tree gifts for children.

Pickup of large donations is available.

 

Caring & Sharing is a 501C3 organization with a volunteer Board of Directors.

How we help

With our food pantry we are able to provide bags of groceries twice a month to low-income families in Walton County. We are also able to assist with diapers, formula, baby food and hygiene items. In addition, we provide financial assistance to those in South Walton County, who meet the requirements. This may include assistance with past due utility bills or prescription costs, as well as clothing or household items from our thrift store.

We have several special programs throughout the year that include Thanksgiving and Christmas meal bags and Angel Tree Christmas presents for children of qualifying families.

We also partner with the SoWal Community Chaplain to help connect those living or working in South Walton who are experiencing a crisis with pastoral care and connection to other community resources. You can learn more about this service at www.sowalchaplain.org, where you will find many useful resources, including information about local churches and support groups.

Finally, we are excited to be a key partner in developing Florida’s first Communities of Transformation program to alleviate poverty in our area and help under-resourced families move from “surviving” to “thriving.”  This is a weekly program with dinner and childcare that supports families through:

  • personal leadership development and education

  • the building of structured friendships across racial, cultural, and socio-economic lines

  • the identification of systemic issues that keep people trapped in poverty and the identification of strategies to address them
