        Providing help and hope to those in need

                            


Since 2000, Share the Season has been serving families in our community at a time when they need it most. The funds raised through this program are used to fill the gaps left by other assistance programs. Share the Season is made possible through community partnerships between INTRUST Bank, NonprofitGO, The Salvation Army, and The Wichita Eagle.

Last year, we raised over $240,000 and were able to help 260 families. In total, Share the Season has raised over $4.4 million dollars and served more than 4,200 families over the past 22 years. Thank You to all who have donated to this vital community program.

A few quick facts about Share the Season:

Share the Season is a unique holiday program that provides help and hope to families facing unexpected financial strain.

Program recipients must reside in Sedgwick County.

Applicants are carefully screened to verify needs.

Recipients must have experienced a recent, unexpected life event that has resulted in a need for financial help.

Households may only receive assistance once every three years through the program.

Assistance payments are made directly to the vendors, such as the bank or utility company. 
 

At least one of the following three criteria must be met: 

One adult member in the household must be employed or was employed within the last three months and currently be looking for work.

Retired adults must be receiving Social Security Retirement income.

Disabled veterans must be receiving Veteran’s benefits.
                

Please Note: If a household’s only income is SSI or SSDI, they do not qualify. This program does not purchase food, clothes, or furniture, and is not a toy assistance program.
