Press Release submitted by Purpose PR Agency
Network Connect will be hosting an amazing event today in honor of #MLKDay.
Dr. Martin Luther King Day is today and the FREE STORE is finally open! This event will be held at 1226 N. King Street, Wilmington DE 10am until 2pm on Monday, January 17, 2022. The free-store movement began in the United States in the 1960s in San Francisco. Today, several European countries have thriving free stores, and there are also many free stores throughout the US, but none in Delaware. All stores share a common philosophy: that there are more than enough goods to go around; scarcity should not be an issue.
Network Connect is launching a traveling free store to take place in a different community each month. For our first event, it will take place in downtown Wilmington, across the street from our King street office. A free store provides a unique way for people to responsibly donate items to others who can use them, free of charge, in a way that also builds community.
We are teaming up with United Way, who will provide take-home COVID-19 tests. Follow Network Connect on all social media outlets @networkconnectorg and www.network connect.org
The mission of Network Connect is to improve the coordination of youth serving organizations by building effective partnerships for youth, families, communities, and organizations.
