Sandusky Furniture Ministry Volunteers & Donations Needed May 6

SANDUSKY—Catholic Charities is looking for volunteers and partners to help create a 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.”


Any individual, group, or organization interested in helping with this new furniture ministry is invited to participate in our inaugural First Saturday Volunteer Workday and Furniture Drive on May 6th from 9:30 a.m – 2 p.m.

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

Catholic Charities needs dedicated volunteers and community partners who can help support this effort. 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 donated 20-foot by 30-foot storage space is secured to warehouse furniture.

Contact Michael Szuberla: 419.214.4950 or mszuberla@toledodiocese.org for more info.

“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
