We have so much to share with you about how your support, time and donations are reducing homelessness in Houston and enriching and relaunching the lives of our indigent community members!
We’ll start with today!
Several of our teen volunteers spent the day driving around Houston picking up, loading and unloading furniture and living necessities for our friend Ronnie, who recently received keys to a new, empty apartment.
Ronnie is a very sweet man who became homeless due to unforeseen circumstances. He is not chronically homeless and, fortunately, was homeless for a very short time prior to reaching out to us, but he is still starting over.
When we heard Ronnie’s story, we called on our AMAZING realtor and interior decorating sponsor, Shannon Beasley Thompson, (www.shannonbthompson.com) and within only a few days, her clients donated a bed, new dishes, a couch, a dining room set, a coffee table, an entertainment center and several other items to start transforming his four walls into a home.
Ronnie still needs several items to pull his place together. If you would like to donate gently used or new items or make a donation so that we can purchase these items for him, please let us know in a comment box below.
Here's the list of what we still need:
Headboard (Queen) Queen coverlet & bedskirt (blue) Queen sheets and pillow cases (blue) Bed pillows (new) Bed Side table Dresser Pots/pans Spatulas/cooling utensils Baking pans Broom/Mop/Bucket Extra Cleaning supplies Towels (gray blue? Or blue) Bath mat (same color as towel) Rug for living room chair for living room LIving room side table Cutlery (new) Lamp Pictures
