Community Warehouse is your local, nonprofit furniture bank that collects and redistributes donated household goods and furnishings to neighbors in need.
The idea of Community Warehouse is a simple, yet incredibly powerful one: household furnishings you no longer need can help create a home for someone else in your community. Through partnerships with 180 social service agencies, faith communities, and public schools, Community Warehouse helps provide the comforts of home to over 7,000 neighbors in need each year.
You can help! Please take a look in your cabinets, cupboards, and storage space for the following items and consider giving them to the Warehouse. We’ll put your used goods to good use. We just ask that your items are gently-used and in clean, working condition.
