October 14, 2019
Untitled design (1) Our woodworking Santas are busy making all kinds of wooden toys, decorative pieces, and useful household items.  We will be present at two community events where these items will be sold.  The first is the Winter Sanctuary Craft Benefit to be held Nov. 9, 2019, from 10am to 3pm at the YMCA Athletic Center in Mount Vernon.  During the Mount Vernon Christmas Festival, we will be at the Jinglebell Marketplace Craft Show on Saturday, December 7th at the Knox County Memorial Building.  When you purchase items at these events, you will be supporting our mission and others and also be taking home a quality, hand crafted item.  That’s a win for everyone!  Be sure to mark your calendar for these events.  Come and enjoy the holiday fun!

Sponsor Hope!

February 5, 2019
During the cold months, furniture donations slow down considerably. Help us serve the needs of our local communities by sponsoring pieces of furniture to be built in our warehouse. Together, we can make a difference!

Sponsor hope

HopeNow Furniture Bank provides furniture and household goods to families needing help in Knox County. This is possible because of the compassion and generosity of our community. Over the last three years, HopeNow has provided furniture to 793 households, which included 2,222 individuals, 988 children and 418 people with disabilities.

Too many children in our community are still sleeping on the floor! Your help is needed to continue this very important mission. You can do this by sponsoring one of the following pieces of furniture to be purchased or built in the HopeNow wood shop:

• Twin bed: $50
• Mattress: $110
• Dresser: $60
• Table: $30

To sponsor a piece of furniture, visit our donation page or mail a check to P.O. Box #627, Mount Vernon, Ohio, 43050.

Have you ever wondered what the HopeNow Furniture Bank organization really looks like?  Would you like to tour our warehouse and meet some of our volunteers?  This is your chance!  On #GivingTuesday, November 27th, we will be celebrating by having Open House at our warehouse at 1025 South Main in Mount Vernon.  We will be giving tours, having silent auctions, give aways, and snacks.  It is a time to meet and greet staff, volunteers and other supporters.  We will be glad to accept donations of clean, usable furniture, new or clean and gently used bed linens, kitchen supplies, and of course, monetary donations to support our continued work.  Come between 9:30 and 12:00 Noon.  Our regular working hours will be conducted during the afternoon from 1-3:30 after the Open House.  We would be happy to see you there and to share our mission with you.
