East Bay Times Share the Spirit readers are responding generously to the annual effort to help their less fortunate neighbors whose stories are being told in print and online this holiday season.

Through December 15th, readers have donated $232,994 so far to Share the Spirit, which is in its 28th year of community giving. Share the Spirit funding goes to East Bay nonprofits who provide much-needed services and support to people who are struggling this year.
