Handmade Wooden Crafts

October 14, 2019
Untitled design (1) Our woodworking Santas are busy making all kinds of wooden toys, decorative pieces, and useful household items.  We will be present at two community events where these items will be sold.  The first is the Winter Sanctuary Craft Benefit to be held Nov. 9, 2019, from 10am to 3pm at the YMCA Athletic Center in Mount Vernon.  During the Mount Vernon Christmas Festival, we will be at the Jinglebell Marketplace Craft Show on Saturday, December 7th at the Knox County Memorial Building.  When you purchase items at these events, you will be supporting our mission and others and also be taking home a quality, hand crafted item.  That’s a win for everyone!  Be sure to mark your calendar for these events.  Come and enjoy the holiday fun!

Sponsor Hope!

February 5, 2019
During the cold months, furniture donations slow down considerably. Help us serve the needs of our local communities by sponsoring pieces of furniture to be built in our warehouse. Together, we can make a difference!

Sponsor hope

HopeNow Furniture Bank provides furniture and household goods to families needing help in Knox County. This is possible because of the compassion and generosity of our community. Over the last three years, HopeNow has provided furniture to 793 households, which included 2,222 individuals, 988 children and 418 people with disabilities.

Too many children in our community are still sleeping on the floor! Your help is needed to continue this very important mission. You can do this by sponsoring one of the following pieces of furniture to be purchased or built in the HopeNow wood shop:

• Twin bed: $50
• Mattress: $110
• Dresser: $60
• Table: $30

To sponsor a piece of furniture, visit our donation page or mail a check to P.O. Box #627, Mount Vernon, Ohio, 43050.
