Help Furnish Homes for Neighbors in Need
Our Furnishing Forward program recognizes the valuable partnership of local businesses who support our neighbors in need through their ongoing donations to Community Warehouse.
We know that there is no “one size fits all” partnership for local businesses to make a significant impact in their community. Each business is unique—so it only makes sense that your donation experience is as well.
Regular donors schedule pick-ups of furniture/household items every month or two.
Examples: Seams to Fit Home is a consignment furniture business in Northwest Portland that schedules monthly pickups to donate furnishings to the Warehouse; The Mattress Lot schedules weekly donations of mattresses to Community Warehouse.
Many businesses prefer to donate a large quantity of specific goods at a time that make significant impact for families. Example: Sleep Train has made an annual donation of 200 mattress sets to both Community Warehouse locations.
Donate a minimum of $3,000 in furniture and household goods annually.
Example: Parker Furniture has annually donated a box truck of furniture including new sofas, chairs, and cabinets valued at over $4,000.
