BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

20 Towns and Twenty Days hit the road again on Thursday and traveled to Bristol.

On Thursday, the day included meeting with the volunteers behind the non-profit organization For Goodness Sake.

Three years ago they created the non-profit that now operates out of an old warehouse on Riverside Avenue.

They collect furniture and household items, and everything is provided free of charge to people and families transitioning out of homelessness and into a place of their own.

Anyone can shop and get what they need to furnish their new home.

"Imagine a key to an apartment, you open the door, what do you need? You need everything, you need everything, so that's where we try and fill the gap - I always say, people want to give, you just have to make it easy for them to do so,” said Kendra Morales, of For Goodness Sake.

"We walk into an empty apartment and we leave a home and you see the smiles on people's faces and it's - it's like nothing else,” said Patrick Ringrose, of For Goodness Sake.

Channel 3 donated $1,000 to the organization, who also received a $500 gift card from PC Richard and Son.
