More furniture needed.. August 13 coming soon!



The International Furniture Giveaway is only 15 days away (August 13), and the showroom still has lots of empty space! Spread the word – We need more furniture.

This weekend (July 29-30) is a big weekend for free furniture as many leases end and furniture is discarded. It’s surprising what people will set out at dumpsters. Also, the “free stuff” on craigslist should be more plentiful this week. If you have the time and means, perhaps you can find some free stuff and bring it to the BCM. The BCM will open during the week and on Saturday.

Of course, not all free stuff is desirable. We need particular types of items that are decent. See the following announcement for the types of furniture we need.

EXTRA FURNITURE? We could use it! We are teaming with Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) to collect and give away furniture to new international students. Your donations will help us minister to international students and scholars coming in the fall. We accept almost any type of furniture, but we cannot accept mattresses or sofa beds. Desks, tables, sofas, bookshelves and chairs are especially popular. If you would like to donate furniture, please contact the BCM at 552-5473 to arrange drop-off, or pick-up if needed. There are many other ways to help at the actual giveaway event on August 13!
