Furniture Bank Sorting & Kit Building
Saturday, March 9 From 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Adair Park- Atlanta)
The Furniture Bank, a 501(c)3, was founded in 1988 in response to the lack of furniture for families moving out of homeless shelters. Today, the Furniture Bank recycles gently-used furniture by collecting it from the community and giving it to individuals and families moving out of homelessness and fleeing domestic violence, as well as countless others struggling to make ends meet. Volunteers will help sort through our donations and make kitchen and bedding kits for our families. Kitchen kits provide our families with the essentials to prepare and eat a meal. Bedding kits are sheet sets that will accompany the mattresses our families receive.
