Donating Your Furniture

A Wonderful Way to Let Things Go

Believe it or not, sometimes the best way to deal with moving some of your furniture is not to move it to your new place.

We all own things that have gone past their usefulness. Or, we’ve simply outgrown them.

Donating furniture is a great solution when it comes to taking this furniture off your hands. And you can rest easy knowing the pieces you don’t need any longer are going to good use.

Visits some of the below websites to learn how to arrange a pickup or drop-off.

Goodwill

The items you donate to Goodwill help in two ways:

There are more than 2,700 donation locations in North America and the vast majority have a truck.

Call and ask if they can schedule a pickup.

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has more than 7,000 locations in the United States. This religious organization reaches out to drug addicts, at-risk youth, the elderly, victims of human trafficking, and natural disaster victims. At holiday time, the Salvation Army also provides meals and gifts to families in need.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity has ReStores, which sell furniture, appliances, and building materials to the public. Sales fund the homes the organization builds and repairs.

Vietnam Veterans of America

The Vietnam Veterans of America organization is dedicated to ensuring that all U.S. veterans receive quality healthcare. The charity operates thrift stores across the county and will accept just about any gently used item. Find the office near you and schedule a pickup.

Move for Hunger

When you start packing, don’t throw away nonperishable food. NJWMA (New Jersey Movers and Warehouse Association) partners with Move for Hunger, a NJ nonprofit that coordinates food donations. Move for Hunger will take the food on move day and brings it to local food banks.
