In addition to hosting an angel tree that provided much needed clothing & household item donations for our families (think: slip resistant shoes, silverware, towels and more), TRUMC also collected monetary donations which they used to purchase twin & full mattresses for our Clothing & Furniture Bank. Yolanda Green, our director of the bank says mattress donations are the most difficult to procure. When a client transitions out of one of the shelters or homelessness into housing, they can come to our bank & receive everything they need to make their new house or apartment a home. Most times, they end up having to wait for a bed. Thanks to TRUMC and their generosity, 20 more families will receive mattresses this year!
If you have a used mattress and box spring that you no longer need, please consider donating it to someone who does! Contact Yolanda at 803-799-3853 ext. 312
