Message from Executive Director Christie Brown

Happy New Year!

The holidays are over and we are into another year of service through our nonprofit work. My sincere thanks to all of our nonprofit members for the work you do to make our community a caring, compassionate place to live. 

Our January Building Blocks seminar has been postponed until May -- but should be a top-tier seminar that you won't want to miss!

A challenge for us at ReSource is balancing securing wonderful donations for our warehouse with the demand from our nonprofit members. We've had some phenomenal success with partnerships that have provided a steady supply of desks, chairs, files, conference tables and other items. So our goal in 2017 is to grow our membership so more agencies take advantage of our burgeoning warehouse. Please help us by spreading the word to your colleagues at other agencies. Or give us some tips on how we might reach out to more of them. We're always open to suggestions for how to better serve the nonprofits in our area. 

Thank you for your partnership,

Christie Brown

Have You Checked Out Our Free Area?

Sometimes we get donations that are not in high demand, more than we have demand for, or just have remained in our warehouse for several months for whatever reason.

We need to make room for new donations coming in, so rather than discard these items, we want to try to find a good home for them. Please check out our new "Free to Good Home" area, just inside as you enter our warehouse showroom. All items within the blue tape line are available for FREE! (Excludes the sign board that reads "Free To Good Home"!) 

These items are free to any member, for agency or agency client use. As with all other items from ReSource, these cannot be taken for resale or for agency staff's personal use. But if you can find a creative use for some of these items, we hope you will take things and benefit from them in some way!
