TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A nonprofit that had to leave the Centre of Tallahassee has now found another home, and it turns out it's on familiar territory.

The Sharing Tree is back in Midtown, at its location before it moved to the Centre.

The mall needed room for incoming state offices and the nonprofit searched for six months to find another place.

Now, Carly Sinnadurai, Executive Director of The Sharing Tree, says the future is bright with summer camps and other opportunities coming up.

She says The Sharing Tree is ready for people to experience creativity.

"We have a big service that we provide to Leon County school teachers, and then, also to our community at large: education, homeschoolers," said Sinnadurai. "We have preschools who are relying on our service, and we were really, when we were at the Centre, we were on the brink of something really big with the Creative Play Lab, and people got really excited about it."

The nonprofit originally left because the rent was doubled.

Now, Sinnadurai says it's more affordable. The goal is to re-open next month.
