Volunteer Spotlight: Dismas House Seeks Furniture

As renovations continue at Hartford Dismas House, the push is on to collect donations of furniture to outfit a building that will provide a home to former prisoners returning to the community. Lori Ladd Brown, a volunteer serving on the Dismas House board, said the nonprofit organization seeks furniture in good condition for multiple bedrooms, a kitchen, office and living room. Scheduled to open in winter 2014, the home will also need cooking and cleaning items, linens and home maintenance tools. Anyone wishing to make a donation should contact Brown at 603-643-5292 or birdtowne@yahoo.com. Lori Ladd Brown photograph
