Shelter use donated furniture both to furnish our hostels and to help individuals furnish their homes when they move on to independent living.
The normal wear and tear on the furnishings in our hostels means we are always in need of ……
- single beds
- single bed mattresses
People moving into their own accommodation after a period of homelessness are often left with the daunting task of ‘starting from scratch’. When someone is moving on they can need everything that makes up a home, for example;
- Single & double beds & mattresses
- Dining tables & chairs
- Coffee tables
- Wall furnishings
Our big problem with donated furniture is that we just don’t have the storage space. We can only accept furniture donations that we can use more or less immediately. Sadly this means that sometimes we have to say no to perfectly good donations.
We are currently looking for storage space for donated furniture. Do you happen to know anyone who has an old barn or garage that they don’t use?
Please note we do need donated items to be in good and hygienic condition – it costs us time and money to dispose of goods that are not.
If you have any items to donate please contact us on Tel 730235 or email email@example.com and we will arrange collection.
Or even better if you can drop them off at one of our projects we can also save on our costs. Please contact us before dropping off goods so as we can be sure they will go were they are needed.
