Making A Difference
The Compassion Partner program is designed to allow for Community Share to give back to non-profit organizations in our area, as well as engage you in the mission of Community Share Ministries and the local community.
We are setting aside and organizing a large portion of our warehouse space on North Main Street to allow your non-profit to "shop" with us! Each partner will be permitted to send 2 people once a week to shop at the warehouse. Visits will be by appointment only and you will be allotted 30 minutes to get as much as you want or can carry from the warehouse.
This program is a great way to stock up on office supplies, art supplies, school supplies, or items that could help other specific areas of your organization at a huge savings. It is anticipated that your donation as a Compassion Partner will be offset with only one trip to the warehouse - but you get 52 trips!
There will also be times when special items may come in, like a truck load of water - and we will offer to our partners for a additional minimal cost. Community Share will have people available to help, as well as carts in order to make your experience as easy and fruitful as possible.
The purpose of this program is to bless local organizations who partner with us, giving you access to goods from major vendors across the country. Virtually all of the merchandise is new - it is usually returns or overstocks from locations like Wal-Mart, CVS, Office Depot, Walgreens, etc. Barcodes will be marked through before it leaves the warehouse, and each partner must sign a waiver stating that the goods are not to be used for resale or barter. They must be consumed by the organization or given away.
The cost of the partnership program is $600/year to offset the costs of maintenance of the warehouse, as well as fulfilling the mission of Community Share Ministries. Each shopping segment will be a $30 flat fee, with no limitation as to what can be purchased (however there may be some limitations on volume of specific items).
This program will benefit your organization, while also giving Community Share Ministries the ability to bring more into the community - we currently have to turn trucks away because the warehouse is overflowing with goods.
Here are some examples of what you can find in the warehouse as a Compassion Partner:
Crafts and Art Supplies
Health and Beauty Items
Home Goods and Supplies
