Furniture Sharehouse serves 10-18 families & individuals each week, they are reaching out to the community in this special appeal to help restock much needed mattresses, box springs and adjustable bed frames.

Items can be brought to their warehouse during the week by appointment on Wednesdays & Thursdays mornings or on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:30-11:30am (next warehouse 3rd Saturday is October 17th).
