Who does Share serve?

The Furniture program provides furniture free of charge to our neighbors in need many of whom have moved from shelters to subsidized apartments.  They need basic furnishings such as beds, dressers, tables and chairs, and living room furniture suitable for small apartments.   We only require that a social worker or church worker make a referral to confirm that the recipient cannot afford to buy furniture.

Waiting List

Share maintains a waiting list for pick-ups and deliveries.  We generally cannot pick up on short notice.  We rely solely on volunteer drivers and helpers.   If you are moving and have multiple items suitable for our recipients, please contact us.   

Volunteer

  

Share urgently needs volunteers to help move furniture. Each Saturday,

volunteers meet at our trucks parked at St. Luke Catholic Church in McLean.  On a typical day, the team will make 5-7 stops to collect and deliver furniture. 

We encourage family members to volunteer together and follow the truck in their car.  Please email Randy Glanz randy@shareofmclean.org 

if you are interested in volunteering.

  

We need drivers and schedulers, too!
