Kiwanis April 9 Meeting Program: Elliot Knight and Kit Cone gave an overview of the “Grace Church Recycling Ministry”
They collect furniture and other items from people who don’t need it anymore and deliver it free to people in need who are coming out of group housing. Kit took this on after he retired from a 46-year job as a Lutheran missionary in Liberia. Elliot joined with Kit to form an organization dedicated to help people who have no money and desperately need their assistance.
Clients are referred to them by a certified social or government agency. They have a 13 year old truck named Bruno which they drive around picking up and delivering furniture. Items are temporarily stored in their garages. Many clients have no furniture and first want a bed to sleep on.
The Recycling Ministry is affiliated with Grace Episcopal Church in Madison and St. John’s Episcopal Church in Dover.
After the presentation, members of Kiwanis applauded this inspiring effort which is helping many people. To learn more, please visit the website: www.recyclingministry.org
