The OneSource Center Common Good Voucher Program is an answer to community need, providing free retail products to individuals in our region impacted by the pandemic or challenging times. The program is a continuation of an initiative begun in 2020 which allows nonprofit agencies to recommend low-income clients to the OneSource Center program. Individuals utilizing the voucher program come from a variety of backgrounds, but can be from recovery centers or homeless shelters or dealing with pandemic times. Voucher recipients are working with agency representatives to establish self-sufficiency, and this program supports this vision.
All donations to the Common Good Voucher Program are used to provide vouchers to clients of nonprofit agencies.Items available through the program can include personal care, household and kitchen items and even furniture – items donated to OneSource Center’s warehouse distribution center by philanthropic corporate donors. Free vouchers for extremely reasonably priced furniture and products are distributed in $25 increments to OneSource Center member agencies for use by their clients. Multiple vouchers can be combined for larger purchases. An agency representative accompanies their client(s) when shopping.
“Our staff has been able to offer the voucher program to at-risk girls in our community, allowing them to obtain items they couldn’t normally afford at retail prices — personal care, office and home basics,” said Doris Thomas, CEO of Never The Less. The program has been a beautiful gift to the community, especially with pandemic challenges.”
