AREAWIDE – ‘Simply Sharing’ has announced that it has been awarded a $3,000 grant for 2015 in support of its Beds and Bedding Program. The grant is funded by the Community Foundation of Middlesex County/River View Cemetery Fund.

This one year grant award specifically supports the purchase of new beds and bedding for families and individuals in need. The grant money was used to purchase beds, frames and pillows to help five families with children and three adults. The deliveries were made to everyone in two days in the same week with the help of many volunteers.

Simply Sharing provides basic furniture, household goods and occasional “interior design” input to individuals and families transitioning from homelessness to sustainable and supportive housing. Approved donations are accepted from individuals and businesses. In addition, Simply Sharing welcomes any financial donations that allow it to maintain the warehouse, deliver to those in need and purchase items that have not been donated or cannot be accepted such as mattresses and pillows. Simply Sharing is an all-volunteer based organization. For more information, visit the website at www.simplysharing.org.
