Charity showroom helps people out of poverty
The nonprofit sector is tough work, but worth it when you’re making a difference like Lesley Faulkner with Furnish for Good. The organization, which had its first year in 2020, provides furniture and household goods to families who are transitioning out of homelessness or poverty.
