THE SHED

The SHED, known formally as the Sharing Hope Every Day initiative, traces its humble beginnings back to the early 1990s when it was first approached about discarded items from a university. What started as a modest effort to provide kitchen items to food pantries and soup kitchens soon expanded into a full-fledged operation. By 2000, the SHED was receiving beds, dressers, lamps, and more, evolving into a vital resource for those in need.

Over the years, the SHED's fleet grew to include trucks, trailers, and a warehouse to accommodate its growing inventory. In 2005, a significant milestone was reached with the clearance of the old Chancellor Inn in Champaign, a project that highlighted the urgent need for additional storage space. The construction of a dedicated warehouse in 2007 addressed this need, marking a pivotal moment in the SHED's history.

In subsequent years, the SHED experienced remarkable growth, distributing thousands of beds and household items to families in need. Despite its expansion, the SHED remains a volunteer-driven initiative, relying on referrals from various agencies and organizations to identify those most in need.

Through tireless efforts and unwavering dedication, the SHED continues to transform lives, one household item at a time. From providing basic necessities to families sleeping on pallets to furnishing dormitories for students in need, the SHED's impact reverberates throughout the community, offering hope and dignity to those facing adversity.
