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.
