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.

News & Updates

  • Volunteers are vital to the Philadelphia Furniture Bank moving its mission forward. Webuyanycar.com came in for an employee day of service to build IKEA dressers.
    Shannon Long (right) and co-worker Kim Glowacki spend the day building dressers donated by IKEA.

When we asked Shannon Long why she volunteers so much of her time to local nonprofits in her community, she told us "I give back to my community because when I, unfortunately, stumbled upon some hard times many years ago, my community helped me get back on my feet. I always like to give it forward because you never know when you might need a little help in life." Volunteers like Shannon are the key to enabling The Philadelphia Furniture Bank to serve hundreds of individuals and families each year.
