During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
A showroom aide will conduct a brief info session with each guest (aka client) and will assist the guest as they select furniture and household items that are on their "wish list". When not working with guests, aides will help with other warehouse tasks such as sorting or greeting. Showroom aides work with staff and other volunteers to assure that our guests receive quality goods for their homes. Wear sturdy shoes. This is great way to have one on one interaction with those that need assistance in helping make their house a home.

Our Mission Statement is: Share good things with good people. Our Vision Statement is: Tonight, everyone eats at a table and sleeps in a bed.
Sharing Connections provides furniture and household items to low income individuals and families, helping them transform bare rooms into a home. Families and individuals come to Sharing Connections after facing devastating challenges including domestic violence, fires, floods, health issues, job loss, poverty and other difficult situations. 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.
Our warehouse is where we build a connection between our donors, volunteers, and clients. Donors contribute their furniture and household items Monday through Saturday, and client families come in Monday through Friday to select items that have been ordered for them by referring agencies.
The office at Sharing Connections is the communication hub where clerical and managerial support is provided for our programs and operations.
Volunteers are needed in the warehouse and in the office between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM Monday through Friday. Volunteer shifts are available 9am-Noon and Noon until 3pm. Volunteers are also needed in the warehouse on Saturdays from 9am-Noon.
