Furniture needed

We have had several new families starting at HNPS, from overseas. They are looking for furniture to buy at a good price or if people are willing to give things away they no longer need then that would be a bonus. If you would like to contact Mari Lamborn on if you can help.

  • Bookshelves (3 or 4)
  • a hall stand
  • chests of drawers ( 2 or 3 )
  • desks (2 or 3)
  • Shelving of any kind
