Client Impact: Drayer' Story
A Furniture Bank Impact Story
In Drayer’s own words:
I was in a tent because…because my life crashed.
I’m a construction worker. I was an electrician for years, and the negativity in the plants that I was in was extreme.
Some guys came by my tent fromStreets to Homes. They got me into a bachelor apartment on King and they were the ones that told me about Furniture Bank. When the Furniture Bank team came by with furniture, it was like Christmas.
I didn’t have anything—you can’t fit much in a tent. But now I’ve got an abundance: table, queen-sized bed, coffee table, and a loveseat. My quality of life went up. I’ve got a desk and I’m working on getting a business started—online marketing. I am grateful. Within a month, literally, I was in a furnished apartment from a tent. The love spills over into your life and then it spills over to others.
