Three Families Receive New Furniture

Last month, generous donors bid on silent auction items as part of our Welcome Home Fundraising Event & Silent Auction. Winners of the items donated by CORT Furniture donated these directly back to SHC to welcome home newly housed families. We are happy to announce that the items were delivered and you made these families very happy!  The household items for the bath and kitchen will be utilized in our Welcome Home Baskets.

After living unsheltered for so long, most families and individuals in our programs move into their homes with little or no furniture at all. The families who received the furniture had been homeless for over a year and had recently moved into their new permanent homes. The first thing the family of five did upon receiving their couch was to all pile onto it and take a group photo. It was the only piece of furniture they had besides some shelves. The family of six that took delivery of the dining set were thrilled and grateful. One little girl, upon seeing the mattress delivered as part of the bedroom set shouted, “That is my bed!” She went on to tell us that all the furniture was going in her very own room and described how they will be decorating it. She is thrilled to have a space of her own.

Do You Have A Donor Advised Fund?

A DONOR-ADVISED FUND, or DAF, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.  Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charities whenever makes sense for them.

If you have an account with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon you can use the DAF Direct link to make a gift to SHC conveniently from your account. Select your fund and complete the gift amount.
