“I work for a nonprofit agency, through DCF. We have a single mother with three children trying to start a new life for them in a safe neighborhood. She is doing all the right things, but she has no furniture (including no beds for any of them). If anyone is willing to donate furniture, she absolutely needs 3 twin beds (or mattresses) for the children, and could use a bed for herself, 3 dressers, and a couch. If you know of anyone, who might be able to help, please pass this along ASAP, as she is moving June 1. Thank you!”

“Dear Neighbors – Thank you so much to all of you who responded to the request for furniture… The response was overwhelming. I was amazed at how kind-hearted so many people are in this community, and in Rutland County. The family’s furnishing needs were met within 24 hours. There was an outpouring of sentiments of love and compassion for this person, who still remains anonymous. Some people were willing to part with things they were still saving. Others, who didn’t have furniture offered things like clothing for the kids, etc. It has been very difficult to respond to each email that came in. Since this family’s needs were met by such a great and timely out-pouring of generosity, in the future, I may post here for others, who are in need of help (especially the children). Thank you again so much for your giving hearts!”

Please do let us know of folk in need in our area. We often don’t know as the need arises and only find out when they are desperate.
Thank you for letting us know about this Mom’s circumstances and for letting us know that the need was addressed.
