Furnishing Dignity accepts donations of new and gently used household furnishings. We are always in need of new, twin size, mattresses, dressers and kitchen items. Since your donations go directly to a family in need, we ask that your donated items are clean and ready-to-use in another person’s household. For upholstered furniture and linens, we ask that they be free of stains, rips, tears, pet hair and from a non-smoking household. Small appliances and kitchen items must be clean, complete with all parts (if applicable), in working order and free of chips and cracks.
If you have items to donate please review the lists below for items we receive and items we are unable to receive. Items highlighted in green are items we are in most need of.
It is best to have items in your garage or outside in front of your house. If you need Furnishing Dignity to enter the home, please read and complete the Waiver of Liability Here. Please note we do NOT go upstairs (or downstairs if you have a basement) to retrieve items for donation. Any items that require disassembly should be disassembled before we arrive.
