Our story of love

What began as a project for the community of Braddock has grown to serve all families who make their way to us. We provide items and support, and we strive to change individual relationships with material goods while combating poverty through empowerment.

We are committed to:

Because the best things in life are free.

We receive surplus donated goods and redistribute them to neighbors in need.

Building strong

communities

Eradicating food and clothing insecurity

Encouraging recycling

and reuse

Catalyzing change through free items

 

Our community impact

We are active and engaged members of Braddock and the surrounding communities. 

We work together with community members to create a welcoming atmosphere where people can shop for or donate free items. 

We are proud to be 100% volunteer run, solar powered and sustainable.

Red Lantern Bike Shop

We share space with the Red Lantern Bike Ship, which is operated by a group of amazing volunteers. They receive broken and unused bikes, refurbish them and then redistribute them back to the community. 

Do you have a bike you'd like to donate?

Come hang out with us!

We'd love to see you in person - or on social media! We operate out of a decommissioned shipping container located at:
