Program volunteers are asking the Clark County community to shop on its on-line auction from Nov. 1 through Nov. 10
VANCOUVER – The Clark County Children’s Sharing Project (CSP) is unable to hold its annual in-person silent auction again this year. Program volunteers are asking the Clark County community to shop on its on-line auction from Nov. 1 through Nov. 10.
Go to https://event.auctria.com/34498e34-1b76-48f1-a381-b8606205faa9/. Shop for yourself, family and friends by bidding on jewelry, wine tastings, Jazzercise classes for you and a friend, luxurious gift baskets, a “romance package” at a local lodge, wine and other spirits, gift certificates for pizza and other “eats,” a golfer’s basket, a singing pig and much more.
Or, “Buy It Now” on the auction site. $30 buys a $50 Freshii gift certificate, good at any one of four Freshii locations in Vancouver and Portland.

“We appreciate Freshii’s generous offer to help our program again this year,” said Harold Rains, president of CSP’s board of directors. “Many of our auction items continue to be donated by local businesses that support our annual holiday gift-giving to children in need.”
CSP began its work in 1985 as the Children’s Sharing Tree Project at the request of the then-Clark County Administrator. That year, 36 children living at the Royal Arms Emergency Shelter near the courthouse and others opened new holiday gifts. CSP now provides holiday gifts to more than 1,000 children who are referred from food banks, shelters and other community service organizations.
“Every little bit helps,” said Rains. “People also can help throughout the year by connecting their Fred Meyer rewards cards and Amazon (AmazonSmile) accounts to provide donations to CSP when they shop.”
