FURNITURE DONATION PICK-UP

Thank you for your interest in donating to our organization.  Without your kindness and generosity, we would not be able to provide furniture and other essential home items for those in need.

Where does your donation go? Depending on what the item is, it can go several different places:

  • To our warehouse to go directly to our clients
  • To our thrift boutique to fund our operations – this happens with pieces that are overstocked at the warehouse, over-sized, are something that is not easily used by our clients, and/or would do more good for the organization to sell.  This is currently our only source of funding, and is very important in order to pay the bills to keep the nonprofit operating (rent, utilities, gas, etc.).
  • To another nonprofit
  • Recycling

If you feel strongly about where your donation goes, we will do our best to honor your request.  Keep in mind that no matter where your donation goes, it is helping us provide for those most in need in our community. Our cost for each donation pick-up runs approximately $100-$200 (fuel, labor, insurance, truck maintenance, supplies, etc.).  Due to our limited resources and funding, and to keep in line with other furniture banks across the country, we have implemented the following fees:
