Because home is more than four walls

 

Become a Member Agency

Philadelphia Furniture Bank collects gently used furniture from the public in our warehouse and provides it to individuals and families in crisis. We work with a network of member agencies that refer clients to us.

Donate Furniture

When you donate to Philadelphia Furniture Bank, your furniture goes directly to Philadelphia residents in need. Plus, you're helping the environment by recycling your furniture and keeping it out of landfills. All furniture donations are tax deductible.

How it works

We offer a simple, practical solution for donating unused furniture items that are still too good to just throw away.

Innovative partnerships let us keep overhead low while offering skills training and employment to veterans and people with disabilities.

With efficiencies of scale, we can meet the City's need to furnish housing for people moving out of homelessness and in other crises.

People in need are able to make a home and feel safe and comfortable, with beds to sleep in and a table and chairs for family meals.

Exude has been incredibly supportive of our mission over the years, and they generously offered to sponsor our dessert table for the 2020 Chair Affair. Despite our shift to a virtual event, we partnered with Exude to make sure anyone attending the event virtually has a declicious recipe they can follow for a special treat.
