Our Furniture Bank….In Lives Touched!
When the Mustard Seed provides a family of four with furniture, beds, linens and kitchenware, they save over $1,000. The family can use the dollars for other needs such as food, gasoline, utilities, clothing and medical expenses. This helps families grow more self-sufficient and less reliant on public assistance or charity, which benefits the entire community. In addition to the demographic breakdown below, we served 45 Veterans in 2017, bringing our total to 401 Veterans served since we began tracking this number in 2007.
