Cathy’s Cottage: Helping the community one piece of furniture at a time

Jefferson County Daily News - July 26, 2019

If a friend or family member had a sudden need for furniture, how fast could you fill it?
Carla Donoho’s best time to date is six minutes for bunk beds, which aren’t a standard requested item. Her record was set before she officially began Cathy’s Cottage, a non-profit organization serving area residents in need of essential furnishings but with limited resources to purchase them.
