Charity Furniture Donations
Furniture Donations and Charity
Furniture donations are especially generous for low income families who are up against making difficult decisions every day. How do you choose between buying food, medicine, clothes for your children, or necessary school supplies?
The choices can be overwhelming. Good thing there are people like you to assist. Your furniture donation will be such a blessing.
I knew a woman once. A single mother with two beautiful boys. The boys slept on a mattress on the floor. Can you imagine being in such a hardship place in your life that your own beautiful children go without beds? It happens and is happening.
Think of all the people out there that can benefit from charity furniture donations. Brave women out there trying to recover from domestic violence; victims of fires, floods and other disasters trying to pick up the pieces; single mothers/fathers trying to make ends meet; schools, shelters… the list goes on and on.
Plus, think of this… not only are you making a difference in someone’s life but by turning your discarded furniture into donation furniture you help the planet by recycling instead of throwing away. Yeah Baby!
Furniture Donations and Charities
What can you do with your furniture donations?
There are many organizations out there willing to help make it easy to give. Some will actually come to your home and pick up the charity furniture donations while others will request you drop it off.There are some resources listed here that will hopefully make it easy for you to decide what to do with your charitable donation furniture.
The Salvation Army - Your used furniture, clothing, and other household items will enable you to make a tax-deductible contribution. The sale of each donated item through The Salvation Army's thrift stores goes to support their addiction recovery programs known as Adult Rehabilitation Centers.

Help1Up - Please donate used furniture to a furniture bank near you.
