Recently, Brian Metcalf, general manager at McFarland Funeral Chapel in Tryon, saw a wish list on the Steps to HOPE website and decided to take action. McFarland’s purchased and Mr. Metcalf delivered not one, but two, new TVs for use in the shelter at Steps to HOPE.

The wish list is located at under “How to Help” and includes items to make a stay in the shelter as comfortable as possible. Items range from inexpensive kitchen towels and alarm clocks to bigger ticket items like furniture and household appliances.
