Central Florida Spotlight: The Mustard Seed of Central Florida
Times can be tough during the holidays for many of our Central Florida neighbors but especially this year. The hurricane season hit this area hard and now more than ever we need to help our fellow neighbors to pick up the pieces. Many families in Central Florida are struggling to rebuild their houses and that includes the things inside the four walls that make a house a home. The Mustard Seed of Central Florida is working hard to help these families with this struggle.
The Mustard Seed of Central Florida is located right here in Orlando and they are doing great things to help our community.
From their website:
“The mission of The Mustard Seed Furniture and Clothing Bank is to help rebuild the lives of families and individuals who have suffered disaster or personal tragedy by providing household furnishings and clothing while being environmentally responsible to our community.”
Some of the things that The Mustard Seed provides with help from donations, are mattresses, couches, tables and chairs, household items, plates, silverware, glassware, clothing, shoes, books, linens and appliances.
They even have an amazing mattress recycling program that you can read about here.
At Smith Realty we will be collecting some of the following items that we will provide to the Mustard Seed over the next three weeks. The most needed items right now are any gently used items to “Make a House into a Home” including the following,
pots & pans
The items above will greatly help those affected by Hurricane Irma and Maria victims right away. Do you have any small appliances just sitting around not being used since you can’t remember when? They can use those! They can also use very gently used toys, clothing, linens, or anything that is also still in the package because you just never needed to open it or use it.
Here is a list of some other items that help with operating the main office.
large garbage bags
Everyone who donates will be eligible for our drawing for a chance to win 1 OF 2 $50 gift certificates to Amazon! We will have a place for you to drop off any items you might have at our office located at 1507 West Broadway Street, Oviedo, FL 32765. Or, if you are in the Orlando area and have these items at home, we can arrange to pick them up. We will be accepting donations through Monday, December 18.
Let’s work together to help our fellow Central Floridians this holiday season!
