Sharing Talents And Resources Together

Our Story

 

START was formed in May 2019 by six individuals who saw an opportunity to improve the lives of people in their community by helping local-based nonprofit organizations.

 

START offers volunteer opportunities through its Outreach and Fundraising activities and Social events for its members. The Organization thrives on teamwork and camaraderie.

If you don’t mind a bit of work and like to have a good time doing it, START is the Organization for you.  See what we are all about below.

START’S ONGOING PROJECTS 2023

(Our members support with donations throughout the year.)

Women’s Resource Center
START supports the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) by collecting new, or clean and gently used women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories.  START accepts to the WRC at any time and delivers collected items every 2 months. We have six drop off locations for our members.

Satchel’s Last Resort
START supports Satchel’s Last Resort by collecting the much needed supplies to help maintain the shelter. The donated items that are on their ‘Wish List’ can be found at Wish List - Satchel’s Last Resort. We have three drop off locations for our members.

2B Kind
2B Kind is an animal outreach program that is focused on finding solutions for animals and their owners in need of prescription food, medical assistance, or medicine. Sales from their Thrift Store fund these efforts. They take both clothing and household items.  Since it is local, items can easily be dropped off.
