Meet at the furniture warehouse around 8:45 a.m. At this time, things should be wrapping up with the furniture give-away that occurs from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. Then we jump in the CHO truck and make a loop that includes five or six houses that have been scheduled in advance. We are usually done by noon. If you want to come an hour earlier, you can help with the furniture give-away too. Although this is more than what is actually needed, I have always found it rewarding to meet the folks who are directly benefitting from our efforts.
In addition to the above, our fitness conscious senior youth will be saving money on gym memberships by participating in the Brethren Exercise Program (also known as the CHO Furniture Program) on third Sundays. Activities include organizing the furniture warehouse, unloading the CHO truck, picking up donations from donors, and delivering furniture to clients.
