Furniture bank an investment in a better life
Niagara organization having a record-setting fall, and that’s not necessarily a good thing

If it weren’t for Niagara Furniture Bank I would be sitting on the floor. I would be sleeping on my floor and as for cooking I wouldn’t be able to. To put a price on it: it is priceless.
I now have a more comfortable day to day life. I am very happy with the services they are providing. I hope they keep helping the families with low incomes.
I got a bed and before that I used to get up in the morning with back pains. I used have problems. Now I have no more pain.
Niagara Furniture Bank provided me with the things I needed . I want to thank everybody for the help they gave when I needed it. I am very grateful.
