The Comforts of Home Free Market was a great Success! The latest project to spin off from Save Us Now Inc., which provides FREE House wares to individuals who have been displaced, in temporary housing situations, or homeless, and have recently received permanent housing. This project began on Saturday, March 22, 2014. It couldn’t have been a more perfect Spring day either with “Mother Nature” on our side.
The sun was shining and many people showed up from agency’s around the Washington, D.C. metro area like: The International Rescue Committee http://www.rescue.org/, “SOME” (So Other’s Might Eat) http://www.some.org, CommunityConnections http://www.communityconnectionsdc.org, and others send many of the people they assist to go shopping to get the items they needed for their new homes. We received a surprise donation of really nice clothes and shoes that was went quickly. We are truly thankful to Byron Shirley, of Shirley Movers for making this happen for us, to Allen Chapel AME Church (www.acamec.org) for their constant support and never-ending donations to this great cause.
