New Life Furniture

We LOVE being able to delivery this family project to the families that we serve with WHOLE HOUSE furniture – such a great addition to making their new house a HOME!!


Our clients are always happy and surprised to receive your tote bag. When I give the totes away I always imagine what a special time the family will have baking your cookies. I always show them the cookbook and tell a little about your mission. SEM is proud to be a receiving agency.

Our guest are delighted to receive the Tote bag. They have no idea they are going to receive it and it’s a very happy reaction they share when we give a mom (or dad) and their kids a bag. We receive a lot of smiles and hugs! we thank you for all you do for our guests through this program!

ARCS of Warren County

This program has created an extra bit of excitement for families departing from our shelter. To send them a home with an activity that they can do together, along with supplies that they can continue to use, is fantastic! Our clients as well as their children have expressed genuine excitement when presented with their BMH totes.

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your thoughtful gift- I have a child that loves to bake and this gift was like Christmas morning.”

Tote Bag Recipient

THANK YOU My daughter is big into baking. When she looked inside that bag she was like a young child on Christmas morning. She had to examine each piece like she was planning something yummy. 
Thank you that meant a lot to us.

Bake Me Back Home

1Lt Greg “NFTCS” Arnheim

Amy, Emma, Mom, and all of the Bake Me Home Volunteers,

My name is Greg and I’m currently deployed with the Air Force’s 492d Fighter Squadron. One of my buddies here reached out to y’all and we recently received several packages of your cookies (I’d say about the 12th of June). They reached us in good condition, but unfortunately I have no photos to attach as they were gone about as soon as we opened them up! I’ll try my best to actually get a good photo if we get anymore from you. They were absolutely delicious, everyone was asking whose grandmother had been nice enough to send us all those homemade cookies! So from everyone here in the 492d ‘Madhatter’ family, I just wanted to extend a huge thanks to you guys. After long days of flying, those cookies helped keep everyone in good spirits by giving us a little taste of home.

You guys rock, and I hope you’re all doing well. Thank you again for doing what you’re doing!!

Barry Moriarity

Thank you both so very much for all you do! The cookies were phenomenal! The cookies were a boost to our morale beyond belief. On behalf of everyone in HSM-72.1 “The Bad Omens” we are eternally grateful:)

“Thank you very much for the most delicious cookies! Our veterans loved them. We love your devotion to our veterans, and through them, our country.”

Major Chris Lewis

Got the cookies!! And they were almost gone in the first 48 hours. I think a few of the folks here substituted the cookies for dinner the first night that I had them.
