A Wider Circle Volunteer
A Wider Circle’s mission is to end poverty through on-the-ground programs and services. Join us helping with A Wider Circle’s Essential Support program. The program focuses on providing basic need items for the home to neighbors seeking to rise out of poverty. The donations A Wider Circle receives include household furniture, linens, kitchen items, toys, and professional clothing and accessories. Volunteers help sort donations and stock the showrooms from which clients select their items. With the help of volunteers, A Wider Circle can furnish 20 homes free of charge each day for neighbors in need.
