This Month's Mission Focus

our monthly focus to transform the world through Jesus

Central Furniture Rescue

This month's Mission Focus is Central Furniture Rescue.

Central Furniture Rescue began serving the Cedar Rapids community in 2018. They believe all people deserve to be treated with love, dignity, and kindness. Their mission is to provide furniture and household items at no cost to individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness and into their own places to live. They also help those who have lost household items due to disasters. Since many in our community are in need of household items and furniture after the derecho on August 10, Central Furniture Rescue's assistance is in high demand. Please consider donating items or monetarily. If monetarily giving by text, the code is CFR.

Accepted household donations are:

· Twin/Full/Queen Mattresses/Box Springs

· Bed frames

· Bedding

· Couches/Love seats

· Lamps

· Pots and pans

· Dishes/glasses/flatware

· Small Kitchen Appliances

· Basic Kitchen Items

· Bath towels

· Shower curtains

· Bath rugs

· Throw rugs

· Dining sets
