Summary

We endeavor to provide, those individuals and families who have been adversely affected by life's circumstances, with furniture that they need to build or rebuild their lives. We hope to provide the clients with the basic living furnishings and fittings needed to make their house into a home. This is currently being accomplished with donated furniture however we hope to be able to purchase new modestly priced appointments.

Challenge

There are many people who have been adversely effected by the damage inflicted by hurricane Florence wind and rain. A lot of those, who have been affected do not have the means to properly replace the household furnishings they once had. Many barely have enough to repair the structure they were once billeted in let alone replace the comforting contents of their house.

Solution

We can provide the affected individuals and families with a selection of furniture to replace that which was lost to the wind and rain of hurricane Florence. We are attempting to assist our neighbors by allowing them the opportunity to select the furniture pieces of their liking thereby preserving their dignity and giving them the needed contents to make their house into a living environment again.We hope to help them put this disaster in their rear view mirror.

Long-Term Impact

By providing furniture, at no cost, and relieving them of this financial burden, we are freeing up their capital to be used on other essential costs of living. By providing furniture we hope to provide peace of mind as their homes are "... the first refuge from - and last defense against - the disappointments and terrors of life". Dean Koontz. By providing furniture we endeavor to restore their pride in their living condition such that when they end their day at home they will know pleasure.
