Faith UMC has taken over the responsibility of Arthur's Closet, which was previously located at Arthur's Middle School in Trenton. 

This is an outreach program for people who need clothing...FREE, used clothing. 

We anticipate volunteers to make a monthly promise to be a "shopkeeper" for us. 

If you would like to participate in this program, through a clothing donation or a couple of hours of your time please contact Cindy Allison at (313) 618-4971.

 

TIME TO SHARE, INC.

When ChristNet guests move into government funded housing, they generally have no furniture or furnishings to make their new dwelling a home.  Time to Share is a ministry focused on helping these individuals.

Time to Share volunteers work closely with the Wayne Metropolitan Action Agency case workers to identify the individuals moving into new housing.  The volunteers provide donated furniture and furnishings to these new residents free of charge. 

Over 90 previously homeless individuals have been provided furniture in the last two years.  As the need for this service expanded, the storage requirements expanded from volunteers' personal garages to three 20' x 10' storage lockers (and still some personal garages).

The purposes for Time to Share are:

  • To receive, store, and distribute donations of furniture and furnishings for homeless people moving into government funded (or partially funded) housing.
  • To repair and/or refinish donated furniture to make it serviceable.
  • To rent space for temporary storage of the furniture and furnishings collected
  • To purchase, maintain, and operate a box trailer in order to pick up and distribute the furniture and furnishings.
  • To undertake such activities as are necessary and proper to meet the needs of the homeless people that our efforts are intended to benefit and serve.

Financial donations are appreciated to offset the cost of operations.

The immediate needs for the funds are currently for:

  • a 6' x 10' trailer
  • rent for three 20' x 10' storage lockers

Donations can be sent to:
