Free Store

Open 24/7 on the corner of Douglass & Bond Streets

The Free Store — aka Sharing Corner — is a space of communal care, respect and solidarity. A place where our community comes together — thoughtfully sharing items and supporting each other’s needs. A place where anyone can give what they can and take what they need.

The Free Store is run and maintained by the community — neighbors who stop by every day to donate essential items or to care for the physical store. Here’s how you can help, too!

Stop by, sort donations and resupply as needed. Sign up for a 15-minute shift here:

Checklist — What to do on your shift

Donate needed items
Part of community care is being intentional with donations. Our neighbors are always grateful for thoughtful, useful donations in good condition. Stop by and donate any time!

Build partnerships for ongoing donations

Do you own or know a business we can partner with to meet the essential needs of our neighbors with regular or bulk donations? Send us an email if you can help.
