Our clients have been through tough times and we want them to feel proud of their new furnishings. Because neither the Philadelphia Furniture Bank nor our clients have the resources to re-upholster, refinish, repair or clean donated items,we ask that you consider your donation carefully. Ask yourself: would you be willing to give this item to a member of your extended family or a close friend just starting out creating a home? If the answer is no, then the item is not acceptable for donation. 

We encourage our donors to DROP-OFF your furniture at our Warehouse, if at all possible, to help save expensive trucking fees. If you can't get your furniture to the Furniture Bank, please contact us and we will do our best to accomodate an available pick-up in your area.

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.
