You can help to provide a child with a bed to sleep in

Imagine, if you can, that your children have to sleep on the floor or your family prepares to have dinner, but there is no table and there are no chairs.

What many of us may take for granted, others in our community may be doing without. Sometimes, people are faced with the decision between food and furniture or other household items.

The Mustard Seed (TMS) has been a crisis social service agency for over 25 years and the only furniture and clothing bank in Central Florida helping families trying to climb out of a crisis situation.

They serve the returning veterans, domestic abuse victims, drug rehab recoveries, homeless transitions, fire and natural disaster victims, medical hardships and the economically disadvantaged.

The families are referred to TMS by case workers from over 400 social service agencies throughout the area. These agencies qualify the participants and their needs to ensure that services are being provided solely to those around us that truly need help.

Imagine again that a family struggling to rise from a situation that was beyond their control can gather around the dining room table for dinner and put their children into a comfortable bed to sleep.

The Mustard Seed is asking for your help. Here is how your donation can provide hope for a family or individual in our community:

  • $34.00 allows a family to participate in our clothing program receiving a total of 12 outfits
  • $75.00pays the application fee when referring agencies are unable
  • $378.00 provides all the furniture and household basics for an entire family
  • $1,050.00 helps offset the cost of vehicles monthly expense to pick up donations

TMS can also arrange a pick-up of your furniture donation including beds, dressers, tables with chairs, sofas, clothing and other household items.

Please call 407-875-2040 for further assistance and more information. Your secure monetary can be made by following the Donate Now link at www.mustardseedfla.org.
