Supporting the Community

At Pine River Shares, we believe that everyone has something to share – and when everyone shares, no one goes without! Our grassroots leadership projects unite the Pine River Valley, encouraging people to share resources, skills, and knowledge to build a more resilient community. We know that the people most impacted by a problem are the most qualified to solve it, so we invite many voices to the table and listen. By creating close ties with the community, we are able to collaborate and resolve everyday challenges, bringing about positive social changes for everyone.

The constituent leaders at Pine River Shares design special programs using consensus building, allowing all voices the opportunity to be heard. These programs help people connect on a personal level, build leadership skills, and create a healthier community. When we work together, we are stronger.

Our Programs

Everyone has the potential to be a leader. We are committed to building leadership opportunities through our programs as a way of promoting a healthy, thriving home. Our community dinners give people the chance to meet one another, lessening the isolation that can be prevalent in rural communities. We provide food support through the BK4K backpack programs in Bayfield schools, and host a weekly free food program.

Our “Field to Fork” program is focused on creating a locally-based food system that includes growing and distributing healthy food throughout the area. Our Freecycle Clothing Unit is a place to donate clothing, shoes and household items to those who need it most. Recurring events and programs such as these bring residents together to share information, materials, meals and friendship with one another. All of these initiatives are created and led by people of the Pine River Valley

Getting Involved

Pine River Shares is run by the community, for the community! There are many ways you can share with us. We always appreciate donations for our family food projects and kid-friendly food items for our Backpack Food Program. If you find that you have a surplus of produce in your garden, we’d be happy to accept fresh fruits and vegetables! Contributing your time at Pine River Shares can make a lasting impact for years to come. Our community leaders are involved in a variety of responsibilities such as our clothing unit and even gardening activities. If you would like make a difference in your community, learn how to get involved.
