Your furniture donations could help someone make a new home
A lot of times, we love our furniture and hope that it can find a new home when it's no longer useful to us. By donating to WIN, you could help by not only finding a home for your cherished donations, but by helping to make a new home for someone in our New Start Program. Through that program, we help women and children who are moving into new homes to help furnish and supply those homes with everything they need. Over 100 women each year receive deliveries from us. Lately, we have had fewer furniture donations and have been finding it a challenge to provide women and children with all of the furniture items that they are asking for.
As you can see, we are extremely low on beds. Usually, this space, as well as the space above it, is full of mattress and box spring sets.
So, what kind of items work best for our program participants?
Many of our program participants move into apartments so for that reason, we focus on acquiring smaller furniture items for them such as loveseats, armchairs, kitchen tables and chairs, coffee tables, side tables, night tables, small shelves, dressers and beds. We ask that mattresses come as set with box springs and have no stains, rips or tears. With all the furniture we accept, we have high quality standards so that what we provide to families gives them pride in their new homes. We also ask that upholstered items come from a pet free and smoke free home.
Furniture donations can be dropped off at the following location:
785 Pandora Avenue
Monday through Saturday 10AM-4PM
It helps us a lot when you are able to drop off donations because our capacity for pick-up is somewhat limited. Please note that it is always up to the staff what they are able to take in.
If you would like to arrange pick-up for your items, please call us at 250-480-4006 ext. 204
Your donations truly do help us provide our programs, so thank you!
