We’ve selected “Furnishing Hope” as the organization for our 2015 Holiday Charity Drive. The drive will run from now until December 11th. We’ve made it our goal to fully outfit 5 homes with furnishing and housewares for 5 wounded veterans and their families. This is a BIG goal, but Surterre as a team can do it!!
Furnishing Hope is a 501(c)3 charity that provides furnishings and home goods to wounded military heroes. Although wounded veterans are provided with military housing- their homes are empty when they are discharged from the hospital- literally with no furnishings or comforts of a home. Many of these wounded vets are amputees or suffering from cancers- so setting up a home can be overwhelming for them. Furnishing Hope transforms the empty spaces into peaceful and comfortable homes complete with furniture, mattresses, bedding, bathroom and kitchen ware. All of this is provided at no cost to the wounded heroes. You can see a short video about their organization here: Furnishing Hope Video
