Exciting News For Oasis Appliance and Home!

June 01, 2018

oasis-appliance-100x1161) Praise God for His Provision: Oasis Appliance has been awarded a capacity building grant through Community LIFT! Due to this, we will have partial funding to hire a part-time assistant manager at the store this summer! This will help us provide better service to our customers and donors, as well as, free up our leadership team to seek more corporate partners and donations for the store. We are thankful to the Lord for his faithfulness to this nine-year-old ministry that continues to beat the odds and provide a needed service (affordable appliances and furniture) as well as jobs to our community!

2) Oasis Appliance Moving Home: As many of you know, Oasis Appliance & Home Furnishings suffered a fire last fall and has been operating out of a space in the Frayser Northgate Shopping Center. Well…God has graciously granted our prayers to move back into our neighborhood! Belz Enterprizes has generously given to this opportunity in the form of a long-term, extremely affordable, lease … AND substantial funding toward the renovation of the space! Dinner on Demand, Hope Church’s kitchen ministry, has also partnered in a HUGE way to provide $50,000 towards this needed renovation from fire to storefront! Additionally, Hope contractors and volunteers have stepped up to help save costs in the renovation by offering discounted or free services as we walk through the process of rebuilding. We feel God’s grace in this and want to give Him all the credit. Pray for us as we go through the challenging process of renovating a store that has suffered significant fire/smoke damage.

OA-fire-8-28-2016-web215x21—> In the meantime, if you’re a Hope Church attender, you can easily deliver any items both big and small to the “Oasis Appliance” trailer in the parking lot outside Entrance 3, or contact us for pickup, or call 901-577-0013.

We are temporarily operating in the Frayser Northgate Shopping Center, 3154 Thomas Street (behind AutoZone), Tuesday-Saturday 10a-4pm. Come check us out! Everyone is welcome to shop and every sale helps provide job training & employment for an under-resourced community.

SHOP! Everyone is welcome to shop and proceeds benefit this ministry

DONATE! Please continue to send us your donated appliances, furniture, and decor

VOLUNTEER: We’d love to plug you in; maybe this is a place you can give back to our city in 2017?

SPREAD THE WORD! Help us alert North Memphis, Frayser and beyond to our new, temporary location. Nothing is as valuable as a personal recommendation! Please tell your friends, family and neighbors through word-of-mouth or on social media (Follow us on Facebook).

PRAY! Please also be praying for direction as we continue to seek a permanent space in North Memphis to fulfill this practical need within our ministry neighborhood.

Thank you for your support!
