I was in a Night Mare Niagara Furniture Bank Helped Me

Niagara College was my number one choice to go to when it was time for me to select my colleges. Because it was where my mom and da used to go. And that where they meet each other and fell in love with. So I always had a dream of going there after my parents passed away. But it was a huge decision. Because I only had a part time job and I didn’t have any savings. When I got accepted I was really happy and worried at the same time . I went there and started looking for accommodations but couldn’t find any. Every thing in Welland was just really expensive. The only ones that I could afford was in St catharines.  And they were non furnished.

So I needed futures for my house. I contacted my landlord and requested for furniture. He took some extra money and promised me everything But when I reached it wasn’t what I expected. It was like walking into a nigh mare. The whole place was bug infected and the mattress had dog urine on it . I contacted the Hope center for help and asked if they would provide furniture for college students. They were really nice and helpful and they told me that Niagara Furniture bank provides furniture for college students. They helped me get in touch with Niagara Furniture bank. When I explained my situation they were quick to act .They bought me a mattress and pillows on the exact same day.

” We Rise By Lifting others “

I contacted Niagara Furniture Bank for my furniture request.  All I had to do was full out the application form and all my furniture where delivered to me within a week. They were really nice about the whole process. It was really easy too . Niagara Furniture Bank gave me more what I had requested for . They brought me enough for more than what I had requested for. They brought me a mattress and study table and a whole lot of things. Thanks to them I am able to sleep peacefully and focus on college.
