The Furniture Ministry collects gently used furniture and household items for families in need. There is always a need for volunteers to help pick up and deliver the items. Volunteers are placed on an email list and notified of dates, times and locations for pickup/deliveries. Typically we try to schedule Saturdays, however, weekdays are also a possibility. Because it is understood that a volunteer may not be able to help at all times, we are always in need of more able bodied volunteers. You do not need a truck to be a part of this ministry.
We are able to accept most gently used furniture and household items (including couches, chairs, dining tables/chairs, side tables, lamps, mattresses in good condition, dressers, pots/pans, utensils, towels, sheets, etc.) We are unable to accept large tube TV’s. We will accept washers and dryers IF we have a family who needs those items. We generally pick up on Saturdays.
If you have a donation, interested in volunteering, or you or someone you know needs furniture or household items, please contact St. Jude’s at 972-727-1177 or contact Cheryl Griffith or Patrick Chiles.
