HopeNow Furniture Bank is a nonprofit organization seeking to provide, free of charge, basic furniture and household goods for individuals and families of Knox County struggling to furnish their own homes due to poverty and other challenging life experiences. Our vision is for all Knox County children and families to live in homes equipped with essential furnishings, thereby providing basic comfort, encouraging better family unity, and relieving unnecessary suffering.

Since 2005, we have been continually serving the community of Knox County, in spite of ever increasing costs and dwindling numbers of volunteers. For the past year or so we have experienced a deficit in expenses, which caused us to be concerned about our ability to keep this mission going. However, with the awarding of grants for the salary of an executive officer, and the faithful donations from supporters, we look forward with hope.

This year, as we come to the community to ask for your support in joining us to build this organization, we are partnering with the global Giving Tuesday movement to promote awareness and involvement in doing something for others. #Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Those who are interested in joining HopeNow Furniture Bank’s #GivingTuesday initiative can donate on this website or through our Facebook page as well as learn more about our related events. Checks can be sent to HopeNow Furniture Bank at P.O. Box 627, 1025 South Main Street, Mount Vernon, OH.

To learn more about the #GivingTuesday movement, visit www.givingtuesday.org or their Facebook page or follow @GivingTues and the #GivingTuesday hashtag on Twitter.

Mount Vernon News Highlights HNFB

June 11, 2018

On Thursday, May 3, we had the privilege of introducing reporter Callan Pugh of the Mount Vernon News to our warehouse, our operation, and our wonderful crew of volunteers. She came prepared, having looked at our website and formulated some excellent questions. We were all enthused to show her about and tell her our story. I think she caught some of our passion, because she wrote an excellent article for her newspaper.

If you missed it in print, you can still read the article online.

Our thanks to Callan for helping to spread the good news about HopeNow Furniture Bank and our mission of helping those in need in Knox County.

Bluebird Feeder Boxes Available!

June 11, 2018
Gary Palm and his crew are busy building bluebird feeder boxes at our warehouse wood shop. Bluebirds love mealworms, dried or otherwise, and other treats. They can be trained to use the box and then their food is not stolen by other birds. The boxes have a removable Plexiglass front.

1. Leave the lid open and remove the Plexiglass side.

2. Insert Plexiglass side.

3. Close lid so that only the bluebirds can get the mealworms and other snacks.
