There are so many exciting things happening with the Furniture Bank these days that it warrants a whole blog post!
But first, a thank you. Two big funding approvals this year have allowed for this growth to meet the need in our community: a 3-year Poverty Reduction Collaboration Grant from United Way Simcoe Muskoka, and a capital grant we received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation at the end of 2019. That grant was for a vehicle for our Community Support Team and then also a cargo van and special trailer for the Furniture Bank. So thank you to both the Ontario Trillium Foundation and United Way Simcoe Muskoka for your support!
The Furniture Bank has been bursting at the seams for a few months now, and so we are very excited to have secured some new warehouse space.
