05 May Bed Bath & Beyond Helps Seniors and Homeless
DONATION: BED BATH & BEYOND HOME GOODS
LIVES IMPACTED: 50+
At the Change of Heart Foundation, our mission is to help as many people as possible who may be in need of assistance. Currently, our focus is on senior citizens, the homeless, and the less fortunate. Our organization plans to open a residence for homeless seniors with disabilities in the near future.
The donation we received from Bed Bath & Beyond consisted of bed sheets, quilts, and pillows. These were perfect for our needs. We ventured out to areas where there is a large homeless population and asked them if the donation would be helpful to them. They did not hesitate and they loved the items. We also distributed the items to local senior citizens.
The donations were a blessing to so many people! There was one woman who had been homeless for the past eight months. She was in need of some clothes, shoes, and blankets to cope with the frigid cold temperatures. Because of our partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond, we were able to provide her with these goods and help her out tremendously.
Pictured above is an elderly man named Tom. We met Tom when we were distributing items at a nearby rehab center. The cheerful senior told us he was in need of many things to stay comfortable but was afraid we would charge him. When we explained that, thanks to Bed Bath & Beyond and Good360, it was completely free, he couldn’t believe it! He took some quilts and pillows and we promised we would always be there to help him. We kept our promise and often visit him to help with errands. This donation has made such an impact in these people’s lives. Thanks to everyone for making this happen.
