Sandusky Furniture Ministry Volunteers & Donations Needed June 3

SANDUSKY— Thanks to all who showed up for our inaugural Furniture Ministry Volunteer Workday and Furniture Drive! Volunteers from the Knights of Columbus and Saints Peter and Paul Parish in Sandusky, OH, organized our 20’x30′ storage space and picked up donated furniture.

Catholic Charities continues to look for volunteers and partners to help support this new Furniture Ministry in Sandusky, OH. The concept is simple, but will have great impact for those we serve—high-quality donated furniture will be picked up and delivered to those who need it.

“Most of us take for granted family time around our dinner table, relaxing on our sofa, and getting a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed,” says Michael Szuberla, Catholic Charities Volunteer Coordinator. “But for families emerging from homelessness and other difficult situations, these simple pleasures are beyond their reach. Families may find a place to live, but they need furniture to make that space a home.”

Furniture MinistryAny individual, group, or organization interested in helping with this new furniture ministry is invited to participate in our next First Saturday Volunteer Workday and Furniture Drive – June 3, 2017 from 9:30 a.m – 2 p.m. We will both pick up furniture and deliver it to those in need.

To donate furniture or to volunteer please contact Michael Szuberla at 419-214-4950 or mszuberla@toledodiocese.org

Able-bodied volunteers with trucks or vans will be especially helpful to coordinate donation pick-ups and deliveries to those who qualify for the program in Erie County. 

 

 

“A friend told me about La Posada. I came and I was surprised because it doesn’t look like a shelter. It looks just like a home. I was so glad when they told me we could stay. They’ve been so good to me. Honestly, none of this would be happening if I hadn’t been here. They’ve helped me so much.” – Marquita, La Posada resident
