Our Volunteers are V.I.P’s!

October 1, 2021

On Saturday, October 2, volunteers and staff of HopeNow Furniture Bank will happily gather at Der Dutchman Amish Restaurant in Bellville, OH for the annual dinner to celebrate a year of purposeful, meaningful work and to honor our team of amazing volunteers.  Our volunteers are truly the heart of our organization and the reason why we are able to help so many families in need throughout our county. HopeNow Furniture Bank’s operation is run by a small group of approximately three dozen dedicated volunteers who provide countless hours of service during the year.  They enjoy serving together and find pleasure in providing needy families with basic household items to furnish their homes.  We are so thankful for each one. 

Congratulations Steve Frye

HopeNow Furniture Bank’s Warehouse Director, Steven Frye, was recently honored as Knox County Outstanding Senior Citizen by the Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging Inc.  An award ceremony was held at Riverside Park in Mount Vernon where family, friends and city officials gathered to confer the honor and celebrate with Steve.  Along with his work at HopeNow Furniture Bank, Steve volunteers at Winter Sanctuary Homeless Shelter and serves on the board there, acts as project manager and mentor.  He also works with area youth at the Escape Zone.  Steve has obviously made a significant contribution to our community and accomplished so much because of his compassion and desire to help others.  We are so proud to have him on our team.
