I have absolutely loved working at Furniture bank the past few months. Everyone has been so supportive and encouraging throughout this experience and I am proud to be a part of an organization that does so much for our community

Working at Furniture Bank this summer not only provided me with great work experience, it allowed me to meet the many incredible people who make all the amazing things happen here. Everyone at Furniture Bank has been so welcoming and willing to share their knowledge and allow me to participate and grow in a positive environment. Knowing that I am part of something that does so much good for the community and for so many families, makes coming to work every day that much more enjoyable and rewarding. The process here truly is magical, so many families now have a kitchen table to eat meals at, a bed to sleep on and everything else that makes a house a home because of the hard work of everyone here.
- Alisha
Amazingly supportive management and delightfully co-operative co-workers made my time at FurnitureBank as a summer student a fantastic experience. I am thrilled to have joined while the accounting department was going through so many changes and upgrades. To have had the opportunity to assist in the transfer from Quickbooks Desktop to Quickbooks Online, while simultaneously learning about all the different components, financial and non-financial, that make up this amazingly innovative company was a blast!
