For that, the couple is launching a "Buy a kid a bed," campaign, raising money to purchase 5,000 children's bunk beds in five years.

It takes $60 to pay for half a bunk set. From now, until the end of the year, a private donor has agreed to match any financial donations to the furniture bank up to $25,000.

The organization has received some big-time honors, too.

Recently, the Piscopos have noticed a new customer group coming in, too – grandparents who are caretakers of their grandchildren. These people, often on fixed incomes, don't have the money to buy new bedroom sets for their grandchildren, Jim said.
