“Good Roots” furniture ministry is a ministry of First Christian Church in partnership with The Judy Center. The Judy Center is located at the Ruth Ann Munroe Primary School under the leadership of Kathy Kerns, Coordinator, and works with various families and situations to stabilize families with children.
When Kathy identifies a family who has moved from a hotel room or other location to more permanent housing, the family is usually not able to afford furniture. Good Roots supplies the basics through your donations. They are accepting: kitchen tables & chairs, twin bed frames, dressers, book cases, and miscellaneous furniture pieces. Twin mattresses will be purchased new.
For more information as to how you can join their team, to make a donation that they will pick up, or if you have storage space available, please contact Kathy at KernsKat@wcps.k12.md.us or call First Christian Church at 301.733.0144, ext. 1 and speak to Cindy Reeder, staff member or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Their mission is simple: No child will eat or sleep on a floor.
