Great Hearts Initiatives | Sharing Connections

Mission

Sharing Connections brings together community members by enabling families and businesses to share their gently used furniture and household items with families needing assistance. This is a unique opportunity for the community to directly make an impact by passing on something they no longer need to make a difference in the life of a family.

Sharing Connections operates out of a 9,000 square foot warehouse and distributes donated furniture and household items to over 6,000 individuals annually. Families served receive over $1,200 on average, of furniture, household items and clothing.

Sharing Connections staff works closely with referring partner organizations. Organizations such as domestic violence shelters, housing organizations, food pantries, schools, veteran, and teen parent organizations refer clients to Sharing Connections after they have determined the need for beds, cribs, furniture and other household items. Fitting with the vision of Sharing Connections, distribution of cribs and beds for children is a major focus of our programming.
