Working together to strengthen our community

Seek, Share, Swap & Give

This page is dedicated to promoting, sharing and collaboration amongst the nonprofit community. As they say –“One nonprofit’s trash is another nonprofit’s treasure”! Use this page to give items away, ask for items to be donated, seek input or information, and borrow or trade items in an effort to save valuable dollars. While we generally will not accept notices of items for sale, we will, as in cases of shared office space, shared staff, etc. also list services that promote efficiency and economies of scale! If you would like to list an item/service, please email Cathy Mendez a short description of the item or service you wish to list along with contact information. The CNP reserves the right to refuse to list any services or items it deems not consistent with the above policy.

  • Office furniture available such as L-shaped wooden desks, wooden desks and bookshelves, chairs, file cabinets, 19" computer monitors, storage shelves, rack and other office equipment and supplies. Please contact Lezlee Walters, McKee Foods, for more information.

  • Two offices in the South Broad district are available for rent to nonprofits. The offices are located next to each other – one is 142 sq. ft. at $250/mo; the other is 247 sq. ft. at $350/mo. The attractive rates noted and other nonprofits as your neighbor make this a great opportunity. For more information, please contact Ann Weeks at or 423-802-0939.

  • Elder's ACE Hardware will have 10 work surfaces/cubicles and many files cabinets available soon due to an office remodel. There may also be a wooden desk, some chairs and a sofa available. If interested, please contact Lisa Johnson at or 423-899-6306 ext. 121 for more details.

  • PEF Chattanooga is in need of mice that is! PEF lends out 3D printers to the public schools which require the use of a mouse rather than the laptop mousepad. If you have an old box (new is even better) of mice that you'd like to donate to this cause, please contact Kate Skonberg at 
  • The HELPs program at Chattanooga Goodwill Industries, Inc. will always take donations of medical equipment. The most needed item is shower chairs and bath benches. Donations can be dropped off at any store or the Dodds Avenue office.  The Furniture Bank takes donations of furniture which can be dropped off at the Furniture Bank from 8-3.  The Furniture Bank is always in need of twin beds and mattresses.  If there is a large donation, arrangements can be made for Goodwill to pick up the items.  To arrange for transportation to pick up the items call 423-595-1030.
