Mattresses and Bed Frames from Kenyon College

June 15, 2014
IMG_7838It’s the end of another college year, and making way for new furnishings, Kenyon College of Gambier, OH recently donated 80+ mattresses, springs and bed frames to HopeNow Furniture Bank. This donation couldn’t have come at a better time as we were down to our last beds to give to clients. Volunteer workers made several trips out to Kenyon to pick up truckloads of the furniture. Then it was organized in our warehouse as directed by our hard working warehouse manager, Bob Ready. Appointments have already been scheduled for clients to receive these beds. We are all so thankful!   IMG_7841 IMG_7840   IMG_7841 IMG_7840

My New Bed – It’s PINK !

June 13, 2014
IMG_7839The single-parent mother of this precious little girl wrote to thank us for her daughter’s new bed and to express her gratitude for the help she received from HNFB. As she begins a new life here in Mount Vernon, the assistance we were able to give her really meant a lot to get her started on her own. She declares she will give back as soon as she is able.
