Becoming a More Than Furniture Friend
More Than Furniture Friends aims to create a small but steady force of supporters dedicated to uplifting a new local family in need every single month, while also making the giving experience more convenient than ever.
With a monthly donation of $50, 12 children every year will receive a comfy bed, perhaps for the first time. But what they receive is more than furniture – it’s really a sense of hope, comfort, and stability for years to come.
You can provide More Than Furnitureto a new local family every month.
As a More Than Furniture Friend, you choose what piece of furniture you would like to provide to a new family in need every single month.
But your choice means more than that. See what moments and memories the furniture piece of your choice will provide year-round for 12 families.
