As you know, December’s flooding, particularly in South Thurston, Lewis and Grays Harbor counties, was catastrophic. The outpouring of assistance, both from volunteers and in donations, has been extraordinarily heartwarming.
Interfaith Works, an effort coordinating the activities of several local faith communities, held a Furniture Drive, last month, that filled a 57 foot trailer and about three small trucks with over 150 pieces of furniture. They are looking to repeat this success again and sent to us the following message:
2008 FURNITURE DRIVE TO AID FLOOD VICTIMS
More furniture is needed. Please help.
Saturday, January 12, 2008
9:30 am to 1:00 pm
Please bring furniture to the parking lot of:
Olympia Christian Reformed Church
2121 Log Cabin Rd SE
Furniture will be collected at the Harbor Wholesale Grocery trailer.
Donated furniture must be GENTLY USED – clean, no stains, no rips, no peeling paint and no odors. We are accepting beds, dressers, sofas, chairs, dining tables and dining chairs.
If you have any questions please call Donna Kelly at The Furniture Bank of Thurston County – 705-1756.
Please spread the word among members of your community. Thank you!
