Safety Procedures

For the safety of our ministry volunteers, we are no longer entering residences and/or businesses. As a result, any items to be picked up by our volunteers MUST be placed in either a garage, a covered porch or, weather permitting, in the driveway. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this decision has been made in the best interests and safety of our volunteers in order to minimize the risk of them contracting the Corona virus. We trust you understand the reasoning for this decision and we hope you still support our ministry.

Our ministry is entirely operated by volunteers – there are no paid employees. However, the ministry does have expenses such as rent and utilities for the warehouse where the furniture is stored and fuel and maintenance expenses for our box truck that is used to pick up the furniture. As a result, on our pickups, we ask, if at all possible, for a nominal monetary donation to help defray these expenses for us. We greatly appreciate whatever donation you can provide.
