In December 2017, Houston Furniture Bank shared a donation opportunity with friends and supporters – the ability for your donations to have double the impact with a matching grant from The Meadows Foundation. What this meant that, during the donation period, every dollar raised (totaling $50,000) would be matched by the Foundation.
You helped us meet this challenge, helping to donate $50,000 which was matched with the grant’s additional $50,000 in support of Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
In the year following Hurricane Harvey Houston Furniture Bank has provided assistance to more than 2,000 Houston-area families, with additional efforts still underway. Although it’s been a year since the storm, many families are still struggling to recover from this devastating event and we are working to ensure that no child has to sleep on the floor.
“Houston Furniture Bank is committed to helping affected families for as long as we are able,” said Oli Mohammed, Houston Furniture Bank president and CEO. “We believe that furniture is an essential component of quality of life. As long as we have furniture to give, we’ll continue to help our neighbors in need.”
