Furniture donations exceed goal of Furnishing Hope
Morning Star Church’s Furnishing Hope Ministry in Dardenne Prairie hosted a community-wide collection day on March 31 for area residents to donate their gently used furniture.
The goal of Furnishing Hope was to collect 150 pieces to provide to those in need in the Waveland, Miss. region.
That Saturday, more than 100 donors stepped up to give away their gently-used items. By the end of the day, Furnishing Hope had more than 250 pieces of furniture.
Morning Star Church has been involved with post-Hurricane Katrina cleanup and rebuild for several years in Waveland, Miss. While much of the reconstruction is complete, many families still lack the financial resources to replace lost furniture.
