The Community Space (TCS) is a place where people share food, clothing, furniture, toys and household items for free. TCS also has a Little Free Pantry available 24/7 in the front vestibule.  At this point, TCS is limiting the number of people in the building. And if people choose not to come into the building, they can drive around back and we will give them a pre-packed box of food for their family.

TCS is open:
  • Tuesday - 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday - 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursday - 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
  • Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, and every Tuesday through Friday, for as long as they can or until the schools reopen, you can come to The Black Sheep between 9:30 am and 10:30 am or between 3:30 pm until 9:00 pm to receive a meal that you can heat at home or a fruit, cereal, yogurt, and sandwich option. We believe no one should go hungry. Please call or text to let them know one day in advance how many meals you will need the next day and what time you will be arriving. Their phone number is (262) 613-7119 or you may send them a Facebook message.
