Community Service & Civic Organizations
Common Heart, Inc is a grassroots 501 (c) (3) organization that fosters volunteer community action to address specific issues of hunger and poverty focusing on Union County, NC and surrounding areas. We are located in Indian Trail NC.“Bridging the Gap. Transforming Lives.” is a summation of the mission.
Common Heart began in 2006 when four friends embarked on a journey to create ways to bridge the gap for familiesin need. The desire that motivated us was to be personally active in addressing practical needs. What started as four friends delivering groceries to a few hungry neighbors has become a local grassroots movement of several hundred volunteers. Our vision is to encourage a small revolution of kindness believing that kindness, God's love in action, transforms hearts, families, neighborhoods, and communities. So, we do things a little differently!
We currently operate two Common Cupboard Food Pantries, one focusing on delivery and developing transformative friendships.Our second pantry distribution of government commodities, fresh produce and baked goods encouraging our neighbors in need with our hospitality. Common Things Thrift Store at 321 Indian Trial Rd North, is a store that provides great used clothing and other items at very low prices. All purchases help us feed hungry families. Come on by we want to love on you! During tax season we prepare taxes for free by IRS certified and kindness infused volunteers. Serving U, a university of kindness, is our newest endeavor supporting this small revolution of kindness with practical training and workshops.
