Thanks be to God!

Everyone is safe at Bridging AZ Furniture Bank after a fire broke out in one of their external storage units which contained over 40 mattress/box spring bed sets (twin & full/queen). Co-founder & Saint Barnabas parishioner, Donna Piscopo, said: “We did not miss a beat- Thursday (the day after) we provided 3 Veterans with complete apartment sets, and ordered 30 twins.  Thursday we served 2 of our mental/behavioral health partners with furniture. ”

This kind of focus & determination from the Piscopos is no news to the Saint Barnabas family!

Jim & Donna have given their lives to serving all in need through their furniture bank. They founded it over a decade ago as a result of their discipleship built through their many years as Saint Barnabas parishioners and deepened through the Education for Ministry (EfM) classes they attended for 4 years.

We are grateful they are well, so they can keep doing what it is they do best: serving the world in Christ’s name.
