Furniture Banks

Today’s suggestion for how you can change the world is more of a future suggestion. I recently learned a lot about furniture banks through a meeting at work. When most people get rid of furniture, it ends up at Goodwill or on the curb. However, there are a lot of furniture banks that provide needed furniture to a family that needs it. This is a really necessary service because, when you think about it, if a family is barely paying bills, they won’t be able to purchase beds, tables, and chairs to make sure that their house is a home and their kids feel comfortable. So, next time you get rid of furniture, donate it to a local furniture bank so somebody can receive help. Also, if you feel like getting even more involved, furniture banks also need monetary donations and volunteers to help pick up, drop off, and organize furniture. I toured a furniture bank in Atlanta as part of this recent meeting, and they are really doing amazing work!
