From Tom Young with Hope to Home:
2022 was a record year for delivering furniture and home goods to those just starting their new lives.
Thank you for your generosity!
From the warehouse this year, we moved over 225 households into new homes. We saw many more families escaping homelessness, domestic violence and human trafficking than in previous years.
So many children! To see their joy when we bring in a “real bed” is just priceless.
For the year, we delivered furniture and other household goods, valued at over $194,654.00 to over 225 families and individuals. We have turned empty and often depressing places, where people were sleeping on the floor, into comfortable, safe “homes” of new beginnings.
Most of all, we delivered Hope. It’s hard to describe the joy in both those we serve and in our volunteers when furniture arrives for those so much in need of comfort and encouragement.
- As one of our stalwart volunteers wrote, “I never realized how many people are in need-right where I live. ‘Writing a check’ while important, isn’t all that people need-it really does take time and talent-and yes, treasure…but it all really starts to happen when you can contribute some of your time.”
- [Thanks to] Tina Arnoldi’s group, BeKind Charleston, who create and handcraft welcome/inspiration notes for all our deliveries.
What an incredible community we have been blessed with!!
So much good…more than we could ever ask or imagine!!
These new beginnings are a reality because of our donors’ and volunteers’ generosity.
You’ve provided homes filled with Hope.
