This program focuses on providing basic needs items for the home to our neighbors seeking to rise out of poverty. The donations we receive include household furniture, linens, kitchen items, toys, and professional clothing and accessories. Volunteers help us to sort donations and stock the showrooms our 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 our neighbors in need. This is an SSL hour-approved opportunity for high school students. All volunteers under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult during their orientation, training, and volunteer service. Volunteer shifts are 3 hours long.
Heavy Lifter volunteers are also a part of our essential support program. They help our inventory team unload donations from vehicles that pull up to our warehouse to drop off donations, help load furniture and other items into client vehicles, and take donated items (bags of clothing, boxes of toys, etc.) to the appropriate section in our warehouse. All volunteers are supervised by a member of our inventory team and provided appropriate instructions and assistance at all times.

About A Wider Circle
9159 Brookville Road, Silver Spring, MD 20910, US
This mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to end poverty for one individual and one family after another
A Wider Circle is a 501(c)(3) grassroots nonprofit organization that provides holistic support to families in need. We furnish the homes of children and adults who are transitioning out of domestic violence or homeless shelters, or who are simply living without what most of us take for granted - beds, dressers, sheets, towels, and other basic need items. We offer educational programs on topics ranging from job skills and money management to stress management and other life skills. We also provide wrap-around support to those seeking to enter or re-enter the workforce, including professional attire, education, and one-on-one support. We work with the most vulnerable among us, and we do whatever we can do to help them move toward stability and independence.
