There is no greater reward in life than to bless someone in need.

The Shorter-Harris Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that consists of volunteers who pledge to donate their time and resources to improve the quality of life of those in need. The foundation operates on donated articles of clothing and other items that are distributed to families across the globe.

The foundation is committed to promoting community development by focusing on the needs of families living in poverty. Through the process of collecting and distributing donations, the Shorter-Harris Foundation spreads goodwill through the generosity of others. Our mission includes providing the basic necessities to families that do not have the means to do so.


Focus on the Dominican Republic

Year-round foundation efforts involve gathering, sorting, and preparing donations for yearly trips. Additional goals include expanding the donation areas to include other countries in the Caribbean, which also suffer from the same effects of poverty, as well as expanding the labor of love to help those in need of local aid.

Our management team

The inspiration to create an institution of humanitarian aid was born as the result of a tourist visit from Eva Harris and Maritza Shorter to the Dominican Republic. While there, Eva and Maritza ventured to visit the nearby neighboring communities. Astonished by the warmth of the Dominican people, and saddened by the extreme poverty, they vowed to return soon with as much used clothing as they could collect, which began their first charity mission to help the Dominican community. Since then, Eva and Maritza continue to collect resources to send to the Dominican Republic and are now looking forward to expanding the geographical borders of their charity to help other local and foreign communities in need.
