Join the Heads Without Beds Movement
Together we can support individuals and families who come to Furniture Bank in a time of transition and renewed hope, with the dignity, comfortability and stability that comes with having a bed to call their own.
Not having a proper bed to sleep on means a poor night’s sleep, affecting your ability to learn, adjust and live.
But with your help, we can provide a full bedding solution—a critical component to improving and sustaining one’s economic, social and physical circumstances.
Every $150 raised can provide what we call a “full bedding solution” – a mattress, frame, pillows and bedding – to those who need it.
Thanks to the Sprott Foundation, they will be matching your donations to the Heads Without Beds campaign this holiday season.
Why we do it
“Who knew a place like that even existed? That was my first experience with profound generosity. Being given a bed was one of the happiest times I’d known! My very own bed. All mine. That mattress lifted me up off the floor and wrapped me in long gone feelings of peace and safety. Being comfortable has allowed me to dream. The nightmares are all but gone now. This beautiful furniture allows for the next part of my life – one that’s safe, happy and hopeful.”
– Lorraine, Furniture Bank beneficiary
