Special Announcement

We are happy to announce that we have chosen the recipient for our annual charity golf tournament! Proceeds from the tournament will go to Home Sweet Home this year. Their mission is to provide families a sense of pride and improving the quality of their lives by providing furniture and household items. Essentially, when a person comes to a homeless shelter and they are eventually housed, this foundation comes in to help furnish their new home with dignity. They are able to come to the warehouse and actually have a personal shopper who helps them choose everything they need for their home. It’s not about just providing the homeless with a place to live but rather a home to live in. So many of these people transitioning out of homelessness don’t have the money to furnish a new space so they are forced to get worn down, beat up and often dirty furniture. Buying new furnishings also takes away from their ability to buy the household essentials that they actually need.
