SIGNAGE ON OUR TRUCKS!
Have you seen this truck driving around in the community lately? Thanks to a Grant from Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation and Midco Communications we were able to place signage on our trucks to make us more visible. These trucks are out picking up donated furniture and delivering furniture to people in need. Thank you SFACF and Midco Communications for making this possible. Also, thank you to Lawrence & Schiller for the design work, Fast Signs for the installation and Melissa for your work helping to make this happen.
Our Purpose Statement As a non-profit, non-denominational community organization of volunteers, our purpose is to share the love of Christ through the acceptance and distribution of "gently used" furniture to those in need.
Our ministry is to give families and individuals the basic furnishings needed to make a house into home. Too often we are hearing of children sleeping on the floor with cardboard for a bed or blankets on the floor being used as a table to eat a meal.
We collect donations of "gently used furniture" from the community and than distribute the furniture to those in need free of charge. We distribute this furniture on a referral system. Everyone who receives furniture must be referred to us by other social service agencies, missions, churches, schools, and hospitals. In this way, we know that those receiving furniture have been accessed by someone else and are truly in need.
If you would like to receive our quarterly newsletter telling about the activities at the Furniture Mission please email us at email@example.com and we will add your name to the mailing list.
