Donation Drop-off Resumes!

 

You have come to the right place. We frequently update our website with clients’ most-needed items!

In response to public health needs in the early months of the pandemic, Community Warehouse offered pre-packaged HOME 2 GO Essential Items Kits. Our goal was to provide essential furnishings to people in need while preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These kits consisted of a dresser filled with brand-new items: an air mattress, bedding, towel set, cookware, and dishware.

For information about COVID-19 and how to safeguard yourself and your community, visit the Multnomah County Health Department (in multiple languages EspañolTiếng ViệtPусский中文العربية) or visit the CDC website.

Here is the CDC’s Coronavirus Self-Checker for your use.

Life is better when a house is a home.

Home is at the center of every person’s well-being and livelihood.

You’ve heard of a food bank?
Our furniture bank mission is similar, except we focus on household goods and furnishings.

We believe there are enough beds, blankets, pots and pans, and furnishings circulating in our community for everyone. We connect these donated household items to neighbors in need, creating stronger homes and brighter futures for all.

 

Our Impact in the Community

In 2019, we conducted a comprehensive study on the impact of furniture in the homes and lives of our former clients. Read the results here!

Graph from Impact Evaluation

Our donors provide sustaining support for local families. Any donation, large or small, goes straight to our mission – and builds the foundation for healthy, happy homes.

My experience was a great one. The Warehouse helped me and my daughter get our lives back on track. We had lost so much and they helped us get some of it back. We can’t thank them enough for the things they gave us to start over with.
