Tuesday, October 30th at 10 a.m. we will hold a training/retraining workshop for all HopeNow Furniture Bank volunteers. This is a (required) opportunity to meet with all of the other staff that you don’t often get to see. Also, we will review our policies and practices to be sure we are all on the same page and are doing things in the best way to serve our organization and our clients. In case someone out there is reading this and is interested in volunteering with us, we welcome you to this meeting! Bev Actis Hierl will be here and will be conducting the training, so it will also be a great chance to chat with her. Pizza lunch will be served. Put it on your calendar!

Oct. 10, 2018: Warehouse Repair Work Begins

HNFB volunteers are beginning the work to prepare for a crew coming in to do ceiling insulation of the warehouse. Since we are open year round, the temperatures in the warehouse can be very cold during the winter months. This insulation will help to keep the temperatures more moderate all year long. In preparation, mattresses, a lot of the furniture, and household goods must be temporarily moved. Some semi-truck beds have been rented to hold these things while the work is being done. While we have the opportunity, we also hope to do some thorough cleaning and prepare floor pads or racks to hold mattresses. The work is being underwritten by grant funds for which we are very thankful.

Hopefully, the work will be done before the end of the month, but as of now, we plan our first reopen day to be Tuesday, November 6th.
