Turning an Empty House into a Home!

Beds for Kids
One of the greatest concerns is for children who are sleeping on the floor because their parent(s) or guardian cannot afford a bed. In an effort to remedy this situation we started a special program in 2017 to provide "beds for kids".
The Lake-Geauga Furniture Bank provides special beds for younger children ages 2-9. This is a NEW bed and consists of a metal bed frame with a 6" futon style mattress. Each of these special beds cost us $52 and is currently provided to the client for $20. We are working to raise adequate funds so that these beds could be provided at no cost. YOUR donation will help us achieve this goal.
