Need for Furniture

for an extended group of Katrina families


September 7: Covenant has received a request for home furnishings to assist a large, related group of Hurricane Katrina displaced families furnish the apartments they are now moving into.  We met this group of people Sunday, September 4 at our dinner after church and we have remained in contact with them this week as they have been getting settled in Houston.  One of their members is a pastor and all of the folks attended the church that he pastored in New Orleans.  As providence would have it, they have succeeded in securing 13 apartment units, all in the same complex.  This complex is called Coral Gables and it is located at 10522 Beechnut (at Beltway 8 near HEB).

If you have anything you can donate or wish to purchase, call 281-795-4526.  They are looking for furniture that they can keep for the long term.  However, if you have furniture you can loan until they have time to acquire something permanent, that would be helpful, too.
 
Here are the family units broken down by apartments and needed items.  The first 3 on the list are the most critical because they have older ladies who need beds as soon as possible.
