How do I donate furniture?

 

Every day, Guilford County residents throw away furniture that can change a family's life. We need your gently-used household items! Your donations are tax-deductible. You can drop them off or schedule a free pickup. 

We are helping our clients restore their dignity and self-worth, so we ask that all donations be:
 

  • free of stains, tears, pet hair and smoke
     

  • in good working order

 

Our drivers and warehouse employees reserve the right to refuse any items that are deemed unusable. Please don't be offended if an item is declined. We celebrate your generous spirit, but not all donations fit what our clients need, and our employees are familiar with our current needs and inventory levels.

How to make a donation

  • Drop off your gently used furniture at our warehouse at 838 Winston St. between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday-Friday
     

  • Call 336-370-4002 to schedule a free pick-up. We can schedule our truck to pick up any of our most-needed items (see the list of Furniture We Need below), but we cannot schedule pick ups for single, small items that are not on that list. If you have a question about your donation, please call us at 336-370-4002.

"I love knowing that furniture and household items I don't use anymore won't go to a landfill, but will go to a family that really needs them," a recent donor said. "Now that I've given furniture to Barnabas, I can't believe it when I see people put furniture and mattresses on the street for trash collection! The Barnabas concept is so simple and meaningful: recycle furniture and restore lives."
