2021 Recipient Groups

ShareFest would not be possible without the nonprofit partners that organize volunteers to collect and transport donations. These groups work in a variety of ways to ensure that the items collected during ShareFest benefit our neighbors in need.

Butler County Success

The Butler County Educational Service Center's Success Program removes non-cognitive barriers to learning by building bridges between home, school and community to improve school success and self-reliance. Butler County Success works with families that are at 200% of the poverty guideline or lower in nine nearby school districts, and is currently serving approximately 2,000 students.

Butler County Success will give its ShareFest donations to families free of charge.
