The Epworth Furniture Ministry relies on the generosity of individuals, companies and our church congregation.  Not only for financial support but for all of the items we use to help our neighbors in the community.

Almost all of our donations go directly to participants in need.  However, we do consign some items of value which are not suitable for distribution to our clients, such as antiques or non-essential items, in order to pay for our operating expenses (truck maintenance, gas, insurance, etc.)
