A $10 donation is suggested for each ticket purchased with all proceeds going back to the ministry. Based in Cedartown, Ga., Community Share Ministries is a faith-based, non-profit organization whose mission is to feed, clothe, and house people in need within their local community and the communities around them. They have thrift stores in operation in Cedartown (1116 N. Main Street) and Rome (3100 Rockmart Highway) to help support their ministry.
