Treasure Hunter & Merchandise Assistant

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

Put your treasure hunting skills to good use and help our community in the process. We receive weekly shipments of merchandise that has been returned or discarded from major national retail chains. Items need to be unloaded, sorted, and organized. We may be surprised as you by what you find.

The sooner we can unload and get products on our shelves, the sooner we can be of benefit to direct service nonprofits.

COVID makes your volunteer involvement even more important now. You will be asked to wear a mask and to abide by the City of Cincinnati's requirements for open spaces. Bottom line is that we want you to be safe and healthy!

The products you find are sold to nonprofits at cents on the dollar, which in turn allows nonprofits to stretch their dollars and put more effort into client services. Past shipments include office furniture (desks/chairs/file cabinets), personal care items, child-care supplies, toys home goods, and more.

Nonprofits benefiting from our operation include homeless shelters, child care centers, community centers, animal care shelters, and more.

OneSource Center seeks and promotes diversity among its volunteers.

What a great way to learn about our community and to make a difference at the same time!

Optimally, you will volunteer a couple of hours a week for an extended period of time.

Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. -4:00 p.m.

Contact us at 513.554.4944 to learn more.

And, thank you for considering us as your place to volunteer!

Mission Statement

We are a resource center providing services, products, and connections to strengthen the impact of nonprofits serving the Greater Cincinnati community.


Connecting people and products to organizations that need them--that's what we do. As a one-stop shop for nonprofits working for the benefit of our community, we are a resource center providing services, products, and connections exclusively for other nonprofits.

OneSource is the result of a merger of two long-standing nonprofits-Cincinnati Resource Center & Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati.

We make heavy use of volunteers and offer services, products and connections to help nonprofits excel. We rely on our experienced volunteers to offer expert consulting on a broad range of topics and to facilitate leadership development programs. Nonprofits can shop for cents on the dollar in our warehouse of donated furniture or in our marketplace. We also refer nonprofits to free or low-cost resources of which they otherwise might not be aware.
