|The award was presented at the Trenton War Memorial on Saturday June 2nd.
This award category recognizes individuals who consistently perform acts of kindness towards neighbors in need and through a series of simple good deeds have made a significant difference in the lives of others. Furniture Assist believes in the idea "from those who have, to those in need". For nearly 15 years, under the leadership of Mr. & Mrs. Dawson Yeomans, a group of 25 or more volunteers receive furniture, household goods, toys, and clothing weekly, which are then distributed free of charge to families that are restarting their lives after homelessness, fire, or flood. Some volunteers serve upwards of 500 hours per year.
For their service to over 1,000 New Jersey families each year in need of assistance, the members of Furniture Assist are the recipient of the 2018 “Good Neighbors” Jefferson Award.
We thank all of our clients, donors and volunteers who have made this possible.
