  • 0

MT. VERNON (WSIL) -- A woman in Mt. Vernon invites the community to help donate furniture to people in need through her non-profit, Cathy's Cottage.

Carla Donoho started Cathy's Cottage in honor of her friend, Cathy Taylor. The organization is a 501c3 non-profit charity that helps community members help one another.

Donoho and her team of volunteers accept donations of good, used furniture to provide for individuals and families in need. The charity is only made possible by those who donate used beds, dressers, kitchen tables, chairs and more.

Donoho also uses her vehicle to pick up donations and deliver to those in need.

Cathy's Cottage is open by appointment only. You can call (618) 472-1923 to set up a visit. To learn more about the organization, visit the website here, or go to their Facebook page.
