“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.” Proverbs 19:17
In 2002, Barbara Myers in
The Kid's Warehouse, Inc. today continues to accept good used furniture, bicycles, linens, blankets, toys, outside grills, kerosene heaters/oil, wood stoves/fire wood, TV's, radios, used mattresses with frames, baby cribs/play pens/car seats, baby clothes and supplies size 0-12 months, sleep sofas, small and large appliances, cars, specific request clothes, towels/washcloths, curtains, and mattress pads to give away to those Kid's, families and individuals in need.
We also accept and need cash donations to assist families with children to get gas for emergency transportation, emergency food, money for school supplies, fresh under garments, shoes, medications, and such. The individuals usually receive a small gift card from us to purchase those items and are limited to the amounts they can receive.
We also accept donations for paper products such as: paper towel, toilet paper, laundry soap/supplies, shampoo, bath soap, animal food (yes-some family’s animals go unfed when there isn't money), feminine hygiene, diapers and such other items that can't be purchased with food stamps.
We have discontinued the food donations; however, we do volunteer to serve as a collection site for other organizations when asked. Each family is given a Bible and Christian literature when they are given home furnishings and we pray with them for their specific needs.
Our agency works very closely with the Sheriff's Department and local police, social services, public health workers, and area churches. Families needing assistance are referred to us from these agencies.
Our program tries very hard to meet the people we serve where they are at and help them to reach a higher level and often healing in emotional and other troubled places in their lives. When we give a bed away, we like to make sure we have mattress pad, linen, blankets and a frame for the bed to sit on to send a message they are loved and have moved up from the floor or ground just a wee bit higher, hopefully to give the person some much needed encouragement. We continue Barbara's vision of handing up not out.
Since 2002, all of our volunteers, including the co-directors are just that - VOLUNTEERS. We have no paid staff. We hope this information has helped you to learn more about our local non-profit work.
Note: We do not require you belong to any particular affiliation or denomination or possess any previous memberships to join our organization as a mentor volunteer. We do ask that you support our organization through regular participation in activities, volunteer in creative ways, and seek material/financial contributions for the organization. Tax deduction receipts are available.
We are always looking for Individuals to
Serve, Volunteers to assist, and Donations
to benefit those in need.
