An Uncommon Place Filling Common Needs

Imagine being a single mom, struggling to support two children without enough money to buy a new suit for a job interview.

Imagine your home being destroyed by fire and starting over with nothing more than the clothes on your back.

Imagine being homeless, wearing boots that won’t last another week.

Now imagine a door opening and you’re greeted with a hot cup of coffee and a warm smile. Inside, you’re surrounded by people who care, people who want to help. The things you need most—clothing, linens, shoes, personal care and household items—they’re all there, and they’re FREE. That’s Common Ground Free Store Ministries.

We're glad you visited our website. Please stay awhile. Discover what we're all about. It's our greatest hope that you'll join us in supporting this important ministry as we reach out to serve the people in Delaware who need us most.

News and Information

Fundraiser - Pumpkin Pies!

Thank you to ALL the caring people, churches, and businesses who came together to quietly give more than 100 Free Store families a special Thanksgiving this year. You didn't even know how you all worked together to allow parents to provide Thanksgiving for their families. Your donations of pumpkin pies, gift cards for food, and even clothing for little ones to visit grandparents made a difference. You graced these families with your gifts. Please know how thankful the Free Store is for you! God Bless.
Lori Falk, Executive Director.
