The Kelly family has found a home, and is currently attempting to fix some of the issues to make it livable. They have gotten some bed frames, and a couch, but not much else in the realm of furnishings.
The Amrine family has also found a home but it will take some time for the current occupants to vacate the premises for them to get into the home. To my knowledge they have no furnishings at this time.
I spoke with the help at the Days Inn and wanted them to assure the families that they will have a place to stay until their homes are ready for them. We will need donations in order to help pay for their stay in the hotel. Days Inn has given us a lower rate for them at $29 per night. Not sure how much longer the Kelly family will need to be there, but the Amrine family may need to be there longer due to issues with their soon to be housing.
We know that one thing that has been difficult to find are mattresses. They have been able to come across some bed frames, but there are not many mattresses to be found. I have at least two, possibly three more couches that are lined up. I also have two dining room tables that we are able to donate as well.
They are going to need furnishings as much as they are clothing at this point. I know that David Deam has located one of those couches as well as a microwave, and we are awaiting delivery times and direction. If you have anything that your are not using, or if you get something new for Christmas and don't know what to do with the old, please get in touch with us. I will be in touch with the family over the next few days to determine true needs and find out what they have been able to gather.
