The Firefighter Providing Furniture
Mike and the crew touch down in Omaha, Nebraska to meet Drew Gerken, a firefighter who also helps families getting onto their feet by providing them with furniture and household items.Posted by Returning The Favor on Thursday, February 27, 2020
Returning the favor
In December of 2019, Mike Rowe and his film-crew came into town to meet with Drew.
The seed that would grow into the Furniture Project was planted in 2013, when Drew Gerken and several of his colleagues on the Omaha Fire Department met a family who did not have any furniture. When asked where they slept, the children showed the firefighters their suitcases and said that they put some of their clothing on the floor and cover up in the remaining. The firefighters returned to the fire station and decided that they must try to do something. They reached out via Facebook and within a day were able to fully furnish this small apartment and had a few things left over. That first family may have no idea what an impact they made on the firefighters that day, but they continue to inspire us to go out and serve those in need in our community.
We are here to help!
