Alternative Options for Donations [July 2021 Updated]

Alternative options to donate

Our main objective when receiving furniture donations is to look for essential items that can be distributed to the families we serve. This includes living room, bedroom, dining room furniture as well as housewares. These are basic essentials everyone needs in order to start a home.

We’d like to help you find alternative options for the items we cannot accept and we wanted to make sure that the places we recommend are open and operating (as of today, July 12th, 2021). In most cases, you’ll need to reach out to them directly or fill out the form to set an appointment. Please have a look at our list below:
