Our Stories

Household Goods helps thousands of individuals from more than a hundred towns make a home. To make that happen, we depend on the generosity of community members for their donations of goods, time and financial support. Here are just a few of the many stories that make up this amazing organization – stories of clients, donors, volunteers, friends and supporters.
