Your support and contributions allow us to continue to turn new places to live into homes. Without your donations, we could not fulfill our mission of providing furniture and household items at no cost to individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness.
There are two ways you can donate to Central Furniture Rescue:
- Make a generous donation to help with operational expenses.
- Give furniture and household goods a new home.
4.1% of all landfill waste is due to furniture and household items.
Your donations have already saved hundreds of tons of furniture and household items from the landfill.
Central Furniture Rescue are active recyclers, working with city authorities and private organizations to divert as much waste from landfills as possible.
Trailers are used for picking up and delivering of furniture, saving landfill waste.
Trailers were provided with funding from the IOWA DNR and International Paper.
