The Sharing Shed

Material Donations

The Sharing Shed's purpose is to supply people whose lives are in crisis with the items that are necessary for basic living. These include items such as beds, mattresses, tables, dressers and linens.

The success of our ministry depends on the support and generosity of the community. If you are moving, downsizing, settling an estate or buying new furniture and need to get rid of your old items, please contact us to donate.
