Detroit family surprised with furniture for home

Family happy just to have roof over head, receives furniture from Metro Detroit charitable organization

DETROIT - A Detroit family has a house full of furniture thanks to the kindness of others.

The Gray family moved into a home in the 2400 block of Oakman Boulevard in June, but they didn't have any furniture for it.

"We had left one home and didn't know where we were going to go or if we were going to be able to get another place. So to have a place, we were happy, even with nothing," said Vashona Gray.

Gray found the home with the help of the Neighborhood Service Organization. The family has four children including a 25 year old son who has cerebral palsy.

Since they had no furniture, the Neighborhood Service Organization, reached out to the GTJ Foundation, a charitable arm of GTJ Consulting, to help them out. The GTJ Foundation brought a truck full of furniture including a washer and drye ron Wednesday.

"Are you serious?" said Gray at the news about the washer and dryer.

Detroit Dog Rescue also got involved providing food, supplies and a dog house for the Gray's family dog Blue.
