Furniture Sharehouse gets organized on MLK Day of Service with help from The Volunteer Center
On Saturday, Jan.18, 2014, Furniture Sharehouse participated as one of over 40 MLK Day of Service projects organized by The Volunteer Center. Allison Chader of the Volunteer Center led a group of community volunteers who helped straighten and organize furniture and household items, and we also welcomed a group of young men from The Children's Village who were enthusiastic and eager to help. The date coincided with our Third Saturday of the month, when we are always open for furniture drop-offs from 9:30 to 11:30, so we had plenty of hands to help unload furniture from several donors. Huge thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help in spite of the freezing termperatures inside our unheated warehouse!
