Funding a small Revolution of kindness


One key aspect of our work is to mobilize volunteers and create resources and opportunities for them to serve those in need. Providing food, clothing, basic household goods and furniture are some of the ways we do this. We are completely dependent on the financial support of our volunteers, friends, and the community. Help us to bridge the gap through giving.

A gift of any size makes a big difference. Just $25 will provide a week's worth of groceries delivered to a family of four. Each of the more than 325 families who receive groceries delivered are served by the same volunteers for as long as there is a need. We do this to develop friendships that transform hearts. Your donations help make this happen, plus providing groceries for an additional 225 families through our traditional pantry. You can send a check to Common Heart, PO Box 2761, Indian Trail, NC 28079 or you use the link below to give online with your credit card, debit card or by automatic draft. Thanks for giving!


  • Become A Patron of the Heart

    Patron of the Heart donors are special people to us.  These are individuals and businesses who provide the foundation of the support for this small revolution of kindness by giving monthly.  A donation of just $40 per month, given every month, provides a week's worth of groceries to 2 families each month. At our "Bridger of the Gap" level of $100 each month, a volunteer team has all the groceries they need to provide for the five families they serve each month.  Through such giving relationships are fostered and families are positively impacted by God's love. 

    Here is a brochure explaining giving levels and promotional benefits.

  • Donate Food to the cupboard

    In addition to air to breathe and water to drink, food is a most basic necessity of life.  It is hard to believe that according to the UNC School of Government 21.9% of children here in Union County, NC live in homes that are food insecure. Common Cupboard helps to change those numbers through its delivery and traditional pantry programs.  A simple and straightforward way to help is by donating non-perishable food.  You can bring donated food to Common Things Thrift Store 10 am - 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.  For larger donations or perishable items, contact to arrange a time to drop off your donations at our main Cupboard.

  • Donate Gently Used and new items to our thrift store

    At Common Things Thrift Store clothes, shoes, jewelry, toys, books, pots & pans, linens, framed pictures, small furniture, etc., we can change into into groceries for families in need. We can receive most furniture items smaller than a bed stand, but unfortunately we can not take in large furniture, tube-style televisions or monitors, computers older than 5 years, built in appliances, etc.  If you have questions, please contact the thrift store at 704-234-8168. We can only receive donations from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. 

    Sorry, we are unable to pick up donations.
