Making Hope Happen with Furniture

You escape a bad situation. You are a single mom with two daughters. The apartment has no furniture but it's a roof, you have clothing and school supplies for the kids but not much else. A lady hires you to wait tables. It's a hard job but you like the people you work with. Then, you come into work and find out it's Christmas - in August.

No, this isn't a fairy tale. We just helped this mom get furniture for her new home. She has a bed to sleep in now. The kids have a desk and chair for their homework. Kitchen chairs, a lamp and an older but functional microwave are on the way now to her new home. We made sure to see if there was anything the daughters need that we have.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall when the kids get home from school today!

Thank you for helping us make hope happen for this family. With your help, they have a good start on what now seems to be a happy home!
