Common Ground Free Store

Home / Outreach / Common Ground Free Store

A special ministry whose dream began and was carried to fruition through the efforts of many William Street members, the Free Store was, and has always been, dedicated to reaching out to our neighbors and making a difference! Many Delaware religious and community entities joined forces and helped make the dream a reality. Common Ground Free Store Ministries is a partnership between Delaware churches, businesses, civic organizations and caring citizens who believe that God’s mercy doesn’t come with a price tag. It is a warm and welcoming store run by volunteers where everything is available to everyone free of charge—from clothing, shoes diapers and linens, to small appliances, books and toys. There are no income requirements, no questions and no scrutiny—only the support of people who care. Everyone is on common ground.

Common Ground Free Store Ministries welcomes all to join in this important outreach.

William Street has committed to providing volunteers on the second Saturday of each month from 1:00 – 3:00. We will be sorting donations and getting ready for the next open day. (During these COVID times, we’ll be working with masks on.  We would welcome 4-6 volunteers – or more!)

Please consider being a part of this outreach opportunity. Working side by side with members of our church family blesses us as we bless others. Please consider joining us in making a difference through this wonderful outreach. You may sign up in the narthex or see or contact Bonnie Ristau – 740-972-4059, bristau7@gmail.com
