The Neighborhood Center of West Volusia has been renovating a four-unit apartment home at 114 W. Walts Ave. in DeLand since late 2012 with the help of individual and business financial contributions, as well as free and reduced-cost work from more than a dozen local contractors.
Near move-in status, the four apartments are planned to be open as emergency housing for homeless families with children in June.
But first, furniture and household goods are needed to make the renovated spaces livable. That’s why Neighborhood Center staff and volunteers are requesting new or gently used household items to fill the homes. These include:
Bunk beds, twin beds, double beds and sofa beds
Sofas and armchairs
Kitchen tables and chairs
End tables, table lamps and floor lamps
Waste baskets and garbage pails
Dining room tables and chairs
Twin and double bed sheets, bed pillows and pillow cases
Bath, hand and dish towels
Blankets and spreads
Dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, cups/saucers, glasses and pots/pans
Table cloths, placemats and curtains
Plastic storage containers
Toasters and microwaves
To earmark donations for The Heart House, please call The Neighborhood Center’s Thrift Shoppe at 386-734-6006. Large items can be picked up. Surplus donations will be sold in the Thrift Shoppe to benefit The Neighborhood Center’s many programs.
Monetary donations also are welcome, and can be used to purchase the items listed above. Donations can be made online at http://neighborhoodcenterwv.org/donate.html. All monetary gifts are tax-deductible; The Neighborhood Center is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
