Life is especially challenging for low-income families who are forced to make difficult choices between buying food, clothing, diapers, and other necessities. If you are able to donate new or used household goods such as kitchen items, baby items, bed linens, children’s clothing, or furniture, JC Family Resources can find a home for them. Since 2015 we have been providing needy families with these basic resources.
Think of the joy in giving and the joy of the family receiving! Your gift means a child does not have to sleep on the floor; a kitchen table and chairs so a family can eat together; a desk for a child providing a place to do homework. One 14-year-old boy smiled excitedly as he helped carry a bed into his family’s apartment “This will be the first night I will sleep in a bed!” he exclaimed.
Your donated furniture and household items can turn a living space into a home and restore family dignity. Your donations can help homeless families transition to housing, abused women find new shelter with their children, and families who lost their homes to fire.
Monetary donations are used for meeting both long-term and immediate needs like purchasing a refrigerator or stove, purchasing diapers, and emergency aid preventing eviction or loss of utilities for a needy family. There are many ways to help.
