Open House at For Goodness Sake

October 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

Have you ever wondered what they actually do at For Goodness Sake?  What does the warehouse stocked with donations of furniture and household goods look like? How does this all-volunteer operation get the donations to the families that need them, every week, all year long?

Now is your chance to find out!  For Goodness Sake is having an Open House, and they would love for you to stop by.  They’ll be having tours of the warehouse, sharing their history and the impact, and explaining how they work.

For Goodness Sake has helped over 600 families since they began 4 years ago.  The service is so needed that they want to expand. Only open on Saturdays, if they had more volunteers they could open on Sundays too and help twice as many families.  The waiting list of clients is booked out through December. This means that a family that moves out of a shelter today into an apartment won’t be able to get furniture until December.  This is 2 or 3 months of sleeping on the floor in an empty apartment.

Please come to the Open House and see what they are all about and if you want to be a part of it, join as a volunteer.
