The Furniture Bank Story
We never really thought about supplying furniture or beds, until we noticed our Veteran clients moving into our apartment homes with a bag of their clothing and very little else. All slept on a blow-up bed, most of which lost air before the morning. We believe that if you have served our country, you deserve to sleep in a bed! With good friends, sponsors and volunteers, we deliver to Veterans that have fallen on bad times &/or who have had a difficult time adjusting to civilian life.
FHTH provides new, queen-sized beds and linens, plates, cups, silverware, table/chairs, desks, dressers, etc. to 4-8 deserving Veterans each month.
As a charity organization, we need donations to help us furnish houses.
To donate locally please call (443) 529-8208 to arrange a pickup/drop off.
Items we need:
- Kitchen Supplies(utensils, cookware, countertop appliances, etc.)
- Office Supplies
We also need property donations and rental units. See Donate a Property below.
** Sorry! As of August 2019, we are out of room!! Please check back soon!
With the need so great, once we get items they will be distributed to a Veteran within a couple of weeks. If you would clean, vacuum, wash items through a dishwasher prior, that would be most helpful! We want our items to help someone transition quickly, not have to wait for/have to clean donated items. No mattresses being accepted at this time.
All donors will get a confirmation email/call and a tax-deductible receipt once pick up is complete.
*At this time, 7/2019 we need to fulfill all current requests for furniture. Please check back shortly for the application.
Another round of big thanks to the team of volunteers who help move lots of chairs, beds, linens, and kitchen items that were generously donated by The Best Western Plus in Canton. With your donations and help, we help LOCAL Veterans make their houses a HOME!
