Free Kitchen Tables and Chairs Available

New tables and chairs suitable for use in a kitchen are available at no cost to local families, thanks to a recent donation to Project Self-Sufficiency.  The solid wood table comes with a set of 4 chairs.  Thirty sets of tables and chairs were donated to the agency’s Kitchen Table Project by Synchrony Bank; the furniture will be distributed to income-eligible families on a first-come, first-serve basis through the Sussex County Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency.

“The kitchen is often seen as the heart of a family’s home and what could be more symbolic of our mission to support local families than a beautiful new table for family gatherings,” remarked Deborah Berry-Toon, Executive Director of Project Self-Sufficiency.  “We are grateful to the employees of Synchrony Bank for offering such a generous donation to local families.”

The Sussex County Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency is a community of local parent leaders and volunteers working together to support adults, teens and children.  Services include parenting skills training, economic self-sufficiency services, family activities, legal education services, information about health and nutrition, referrals, advocacy and other services.  All activities are free and open to the public.
