Furnishing Hope: Furniture donations headed for Joplin
Morning Star Church’s Furnishing Hope Ministry hosted a community-wide collection day on Nov. 3 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 Joplin, Mo. region. That Saturday, more than 40 donors stepped up to give away their gently-used items.
By the end of the day, Furnishing Hope had more than 170 pieces of furniture.
Morning Star Church, in Dardenne Prairie, has been involved with post-tornado cleanup and the rebuild for several years, all over the nation. While much of the reconstruction is complete, many families still lack the financial resources to replace lost furniture.
