We will not be accepting furniture donations between now and the middle of January. During this time, we’ll be collecting bicycles and sprucing them up in preparation for our Christmas giveaway, and then we’ll give our volunteers a break to enjoy the holidays. If you would like to donate furniture before then, please consider Habitat for Humanity ReStore (www.restorenova.org).
The Furniture Program has an ongoing need for beds (all sizes except King), dressers and chests of drawers, sofas and love seats (but no sleep sofas or sectional sofas), dining table/chair sets, microwave ovens, rugs, lamps, baby cribs and mattresses. Pick-ups of donated furniture will resume February 14 and will continue each month on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. To schedule a pick-up, call (202)-681-5279 .
For more on the items needed (and not needed) by the Furniture Program, see this page.
