The First Presbyterian Furniture Ministry continues to strive to serve those in need during this time of crisis, being ever mindful of avoiding contact in order to protect the good health of our clients and volunteers. Since the shutdown began, we are pleased to have been able to distribute items to 15 families. All but one of those expecting delivery on the March date that had to be cancelled have received their items, and they are exceedingly grateful to have them during this quarantine.
For the time being, we will be serving only those clients who can arrange to pick up their items. No delivery days will be scheduled until further notice.We will accept donated items from church members who can deliver them to the church warehouse. Please call 336-212-2937 if you have items to donate.We continue to need donations. Lamps, pots and pans, and towels are in especially short supply now. Elon University will not be having their annual Don’t Trash It! linen collection campaign this year, so the Ministry will be in great need of donations of linens or funds to buy mattress pads, blankets and comforters.
Thank you so much for your support and for your prayers for our volunteers and especially for our clients who are managing this crisis in hardship conditions.
