Energy Cooperative Grant

Thanks to a generous grant from the Energy Cooperative, we were able to “stock the shelves” with new mattresses and box springs. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep in a clean, comfortable bed.

Knox Foundation Grant

A generous Knox Foundation grant allowed us to stock our shelves with essential things needed to make a house a home. We’re working together to help our neighbors in need. Thank you!

Congratulations, Madison!

We were so thrilled today to be a part of making This dream come true! Madison has been with this foster mom since she was 13. At age 20, she now has a job and is moving into her first apartment (right down the street from Mom). We helped to furnish that apartment for her. By the way, Mom has fostered 60 children in the past 10 years and Madison helped with caring for some of them.
