Furniture Sharehouse, Westchester’s Furniture Bank, has issued an urgent call for donations of furniture to fill the increased immediate needs of individuals and families suffering furniture poverty in the County. The organization furnished 42 families in October, a 30% increase in requests for furniture assistance since this summer, due in part to recent flooding, an influx of newly-settled refugees, and general increased hardship due to economic circumstances.

Unlike other organizations that accept furniture donations to sell in re-sale stores, Furniture Sharehouse gives it FREE OF CHARGE DIRECTLY to those who cannot afford to buy furniture, even at re-sale store prices. Since 2007, they have distributed over 98,000 items of FREE furniture worth over $5.5 million to more than 17,500 individuals who were living in empty apartments and could not afford even the most basic furniture.
