Thank you, generous and caring readers! This year’s Season to Share raised $870,709 — a record!
That number reflects the largest amount ever raised in Season to Share’s 17 years. But it only partially reflects a community’s generosity, its donation of goods, its hours of service, its in-kind giving. A Category 5-strength kind of giving.

The Palm Beach Post launched its annual holiday campaign, Season to Share, in 1995. Each year, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the paper and website tell the stories of more than a dozen struggling families who have been nominated by local charitable organizations. Readers are invited to contribute money, merchandise and services to help them. Thank you for Sharing.
