Last year (2021), from our warehouse, we delivered furniture and other household goods, valued at over $160,000 to over 196 families and individuals. We have turned empty and often depressing places into comfortable “homes”; places of new beginnings.
We delivered: 144 Beds, 223 Dressers, 140 Night Stands, 118 Kitchen Tables, 392 Kitchen Chairs, 45 Microwaves, 131 Sofas , 136 stuffed Chairs, 118 Coffee Tables, 103 End Tables, 201 Tables Lamps, 141 Linen Kits, 115 Kitchen Kits and SO MUCH MORE! Most of all we delivered Hope. As one of our veterans remarked, “You know, I thank God for people like you. No one recognizes us anymore. It’s been hard. But, some people like you have really saved me. Really saved me.”
During the past year, we also added several new partner organizations to include homes for women and children escaping domestic violence and human trafficking. We added: My Sister’s House, The Formation Project, Perservere (a women’s prison release organization) and Families Count (a faith-based counseling and training service that works to keep poor families intact). We have also partnered with the James Island Veterans Home, which provided transitional housing and training to homeless veterans. And, we provided substantial support to the Charleston Police Department’s Community Outreach effort.
