Fresh Start

Fresh Start was an idea from lnterfaith Coalition. Many families that are housed by lnterfaith do not have much or anything at all in the way of household goods when moving on to permanent housing. Pilgrim Circle had previously done very large rummage sales in the basement of the church. It was decided that the circle could collect household items for the kitchen, bath, and bedrooms. We started in 2014 and have now serviced 181 families. We continue to collect items and now assist Ground Floor, Opportunity Council as well as Interfaith. Requests have increased in the last couple of months. If you have items in good condition, please donate by leaving them well marked, in the basement by the double doors. Gently used is okay except for pillows. Pillows must be new. A list of most needed items is below. Cash donations are gratefully accepted also. Any questions? Call Barbara Green, 360-201-9259.
