Tom Shobe – Founder. My passion for non-profit and charities began in the early 1990’s. I supported a friend during the Christmas season to provide clothes to the homeless in downtown Seattle. This inspired me to “step -it-up”. With the help of friends, family, and co-workers we would gather clothing, food, toiletries, toothpaste/brushes, blankets, gloves, hats, sleeping bags and such. During Thanksgiving for the next 25 years, we would distribute these items to brighten the day of someone less fortunate. In addition to the homeless drive, I began volunteering at charity auction events as a spotter, recorder, volunteer recruiter and silent auction organizer. Charity4USA was established and our goal is to be America’s Charity Connection.
