      Help sort donations and stock the showroom at A Wider Circle, a local nonprofit organization that helps people living in poverty furnish their homes free of charge. This is a family-friendly community service opportunity!

      The mission of A Wider Circle is to end poverty. A Wider Circle’s holistic approach integrates on-the-ground services for the creation of stable homes, workforce development, and neighborhood revitalization. They also seek to develop large-scale solutions that incorporate greater awareness and engagement by the community.

      In this volunteer opportunity, you’ll be helping out with A Wider Circle’s Essential Support program. The program focuses on providing basic need items for the home to our neighbors seeking to rise out of poverty. The donations A Wider Circle receives include household furniture, linens, kitchen items, toys, and professional clothing and accessories. Volunteers will help to sort donations and stock the showrooms A Wider Circle’s clients select their items from. With the help of volunteers like you, A Wider Circle is able to furnish 10-20 homes free of charge each day for neighbors in need.
