We started NeighborLink Porter County six years ago. Since that time, our volunteers have completed
almost 400 projects!. We have been looking for a way to build some capacity into our organization and we have decided to open a retail store that will sell gently used, donated, building materials! This will allow us to continue to support the mission of NeighborLink Porter County which we feel so passionate about. And it will help the environment by keeping many items out of the landfills. Here is what Beth said about her recent experience with NeighborLink; "I am thankful NeighborLink was in my corner when I needed help. I look forward to giving back to this amazing non-profit organization to help be in someone else's corner and to help NeighborLink be all it can be!"
We are so excited about this new adventure! We have prayed about this every step of the way and will continue to walk through each door that is opened to us. We need your to help us get this project off the ground! You can help in several ways!
Here are a few of the things we will be looking for:
Gently used working, appliances
Gently used non-stained furniture
Flat Screen Tv's
Remember: These items need to be gently used and it good working order so that they can be sold to the public in order to support NeighborLink.
Here are a few ways that you can help:
If you have always wanted to help NeighborLink but just weren't sure where to start, maybe this would be a good fit for you. Please contact us if you would be willing to volunteer at the store. We need people to help run the shop and to clean, sort and display merchandise.
While we don't have a grand opening date yet, our tentative hours of operation will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10-4 and Saturday 9-2. Come in to see if you can find a bargain!
Are you gifted in the art of Repurposing? Maybe you could take some of the merchandise from the store and make it into something beautiful!

We need to start filling the building which is located at 102 Beverly Dr. in Chesterton. It's right on Calumet down from the Round The Clock Restaurant. We are tentatively planning on being there from 9:00-noon this Saturday if you have anything you would like to donate. Please let us know so that we can plan accordingly.
Please pray for us throughout this endeavor!
