We’re thrilled to share some powerful news about the impact of our collective efforts. From January to September of this year, the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio has been able to extend our helping hand to 2,739 families in need. This is a substantial increase from the 2,575 families served during the same period last year, a clear indication of the heightened need in our community. The rapid rise in inflation has led to increased costs in housing, furniture, and other essential items. Families are feeling the strain more than ever before, and the support of our community has been the beacon of hope they need. Your generosity and commitment have allowed us to operate at full capacity, ensuring that every family in need is met with comfort, stability, and a fresh start. Together, we’re making a tangible difference in the lives of those facing adversity.
