If you have furniture in good condition, it is fairly easy to donate it to a person in need through a furniture bank.  Many locations will pick up for free. And you can be sure your furniture is going to a needy family.

It’s easy to find the nearest furniture bank to you in North America.

What is a Furniture Bank?

A furniture bank is a charitable organization or non-profit that helps families in need furnish a home. Many types of home furniture, housewares, and linens are typically accepted, although every organization will have their own needs and restrictions on things they can’t take or don’t need.

Typical categories most places take include:

  • Bedroom furniture
  • Dining room furniture
  • Housewares, and small appliances
  • Lamps
  • Other home decor

There is a lot of variation on what different organizations will and won’t take. Some take TVs of a certain size, some don’t. Check the specific guidelines before dropping off.

Only donate items that are clean, in good working order, and have all necessary parts. Ask if you’re not sure.

Your donation is to solve a problem, not create a problem for volunteers to solve.
