John is a founding member of Team SHARE and has been volunteering with SHARE since 2008.
John founded the Share Chapter at DeSales University. During the first semester, John and the DeSales Chapter organized a Church Collection on campus, raising over $450, and sold handmade African ornaments to the university community raising almost $200. Under John’s leadership, the DeSales University Chapter organized and held the first ever SHARE 5K on the DeSales campus. 65 runners were in attendance at the race, including students and faculty from the DeSales community, as well as residents of the Lehigh Valley. The event raised over $1,500 for SHARE.
Since then, John has organized another SHARE 5K in the DeSales community. In 2014, the DeSales SHARE Chapter also received the Reverend James Finnegan Community Service Award for Outstanding Organization.
