"Front Porch Give Back, A Community of Giving Back"
We have spent a lot of hard work on making this dream turn into reality here at Front Porch Realty. Front Porch Give Back, once just an amazing idea in Laura's mind, once just a bunch of boxes filled with unused household supplies, once just a basement to store supplies for the business...now a place for those in need to come shop free of charge for household items.
What can you donate?
Kitchen tables & chairs, coffee tables & end tables, working lamps, dressers & nightstands, small working kitchen appliances (toasters, coffee pots, microwaves, blenders, etc.), dishes, cutlery, pots & pans, glasses, gift cards, light bulbs, cleaning supplies.
Where can you donate?
You may drop off at our office anytime during business hours; Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm located at 604 N. Main Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC.
I asked Laura Moody a few questions regarding Front Porch Give Back -
1. Where did the idea come from?
"I have always wanted to "give-back" to the youth of my community as I am an adoptee myself. My twin brother and I (as well as our older adopted brother) could have easily grown up in foster care if we had not been adopted into a loving home. When young adults age out of our Wake county foster care system they are set up in an apartment and given only a bed and an alarm clock.
We wanted a way to be able to connect the unwanted household items of our sellers with the needs of our community's young adults and families. Our recipients are by referral only from our local schools, churches and anyone else wanting to help."
2. What is a long term goal with FPGB?
"My long term goal is to keep a fully stocked office basement full of furniture and household goods so that anyone that needs help can receive it. I would also love to have it stocked with basic cleaning supplies and other household needs a lot of us take for granted; new sheet sets/towels, batteries, lightbulbs, flashlights, etc."
3. How are you getting the word out?
"We are getting the word out with social media but would also love to be able to put our brochure out at other local Fuquay-Varina businesses. We do want donors to realize we are not a "thrift shop", we are only asking for what is listed in our post. Recipients "shop" our household goods free of charge."
