Nonprofit agencies, family members and friends waited patiently for doors to open on June 26 for OneSource Center’s public offering of home assist items for those in need. The items, designed to help those with mobility issues, had been donated to OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence through Good 360, a partner organization that secures retail donations for nonprofits. These items were then offered to homes and organizations where they would be utilized. At the end of the two-day free offering, over 235 items were placed in needy homes and organizations. Community members and agencies obtained items for family or clients who were disabled, had mobility issues, or for loved ones who were recovering from recent surgeries.
“OneSource Center is a resource center for nonprofits, but our ultimate goal is to make an impact on the lives of the people in our region,” said OneSource Center CEO Christie Brown. “We worked with our consultant team to spread the word of this free offering to nonprofits and individuals alike. The stories of how these items will be used by community members is heart-warming and proves if we are all creative we can each make a difference through our own systems of outreach.” (more…)
