Today we moved furniture into the house for the needy family.
They got 4 beds, a couch a loveseat and some misc stuff, including bedding for all the beds. They also got a Christmas tree, complete with lights and decorations. Tomorrow they're getting a refrigerator, a stove, a kitchen table and a love seat. When I told the mom I found her a refrigerator and a stove, her face lit up like a Christmas tree! The kids all piled on the couch and we took a great picture.
This family has 2 kids with disabilities, one due to a tragic freak accident in which they lost one child. They also have 3 other children. I hear the heat is getting turned on early next week but we found them several space heaters & it was comfortable in there when we visited today. I also brought 3 bags of donated groceries (carbs, all carbs but food nonetheless).
It felt like Christmas.
