Get Involved to Help Change Lives
The Blessing Board is able to provide for our community due in large part to our incredible volunteers. We’re always looking for others to join our team and help us furnish homes throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area. We happily accept individuals looking to serve others as well as groups that are looking to provide one-time or ongoing support.
Volunteering at The Blessing Board provides an opportunity to work alongside others who share a passion for making a difference. Join us in our North Showroom, located in Shaler Plaza, or our South Showroom, located in West Mifflin, to support our mission of giving furniture and household goods to families in need.
