Frequently asked questions
We recently launched Canada’s first DISTANCED furniture donation removal service to respond to this crisis! We have provided a clear timeline covering the process of a single household donation here.
To coordinate all team volunteering events and pay for all staff and trucks involved we ask for $250 per employee volunteer. This provides critical funding for unbudgeted COVID Emergency Funding needed. These funds cover coordination of each team volunteering event with each staff member, transport to collect the donation and fund the processing work at Furniture Bank to get donations ultimately into a home. You can see all the steps following furniture donation pickup that your fee supports here.
YES! Our critical needs are furniture, housewares, and funding to accelerate operations. There are many ways companies have supported in the past (keeping physical distancing in mind):
- Help promote Furniture Bank's Pickup Service through your own radio, TV, digital channels.
- In-kind donations of cleaning supplies
- Financial Donations
While we’d love to accept all donations, our mission is to provide our clients with the essential items needed to create a home, such as chairs, tables, sofas, dressers, and housewares.
The full list of items that we can accept is found here.

Let's talk about corporate volunteering opportunities during COVID-19
Due tothe ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have paused our traditional corporate volunteering and employee engagement opportunities on site at Furniture Bank Toronto.
At this time we need corporate volunteering support to focus on getting donated furniture and housewares into the charity safely for your staff, our staff, and the families we serve.
This ‘Spring Clean from Home‘ volunteer event has worked well, and is a critical component to our emergency stabilization work as one of the leading charities in Toronto. Let’s talk about how this can be a great team volunteering event in these challenging times.
In a corporate volunteers own words!
