Fund a Bed on Giving Tuesday
Can you imagine living in a home without a bed to sleep on? For many of our clients living without furniture, this is reality.
Every year, we do our best to provide 4,000 adults and 3,000 children with good quality clean mattresses, free of rips, stains, or odors. This requires re-stocking mattresses at a rate of 150 per week – far higher than the rate of donated mattresses we receive.
Our Fund a Bed program helps fill the gaps by purchasing mattresses and box springs when our donated supplies run low.
Giving Tuesday is November 28. Our goal is to raise enough money in a single day to provide beds for 500 people who would otherwise be sleeping on the floor.
Your gift will be matched, in memory of Barbara Howland who passed away this past July while serving as President of the Board of the Directors. Household Goods board members pledged $20,000 to honor Barbara and raise money to buy beds – something very close to Barbara’s heart.
Donate today and help make it possible.
