Hello CATCH friends!
"We are excited to say that we will be moving a record number of families with children, out of the shelters and into their own apartments, over the next several weeks, due some new funding we have received. This means that we are in DESPERATE need of household items for each of the families. Everything from lamps, to silverware, toasters, blankets, sofas, chairs - you name it,WE NEED IT!!! We accept gently used and new items and furniture. You may bring them to the office or we can make arrangements to have them picked up, with advanced notice, during regular business hours, which are Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM. You may even consider sharing this opportunity with a church group you are involved in, your students, co-workers, or neighbors, and do a "household item drive" or "cleaning supply drive," etc. Your support and kindness will help a family as they get a new start and work towards getting back on their feet. I know first hand that the contribution you make will change their lives forever! "
"Please contact us as soon as possible! We look forward to witnessing the hospitality & generosity of this amazing community!!!"
