Beds for Matt and Phyllis

For Phyllis and James, Hurricane Ian left them with no where to go and very few options. The South Florida couple had retired, and found themselves needing to be rescued by FEMA when their home flooded during the storm. “All we had left were our walkers.”

Relocating to Orlando after the storm and settling into a retirement community without anything left Phyllis sleeping on a folding chair, and James on the floor, where he developed carpet burn after just a week. The Mustard Seed delivered all the furniture they needed.

“The moment your staff left, I crawled into bed and napped for 4 hours. It was so good to sleep in a bed,” said James of the experience.

James and Phyllis received a total of 23 pieces of furniture to make their apartment into a home. Thank you to Heart of Florida United Way for providing funding to serve those affected by Hurricane Ian and Nicole.
