CHAT's Furniture Warehouse
Our furniture warehouse provides furniture & household goods for dozens of people every year.
To donate furniture or household good items, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a picture and description of your items with their current working condition if applicable, whether you can deliver the item(s) or if you need us to pick them up, and your phone number. If we can take your items, we will be in touch with you about how you can drop off your donations, or if our schedule allows, how we can pick them up.
We can accept: tables, chairs, shelves. dressers, bed-frames, mattresses (except king-size), desks, small appliances, and miscellaneous household goods. Appliances must be in working order unless they're easily repairable.
Currently not accepting (Aug 2021): king-size mattresses/beds, sofas
Sorry, we cannot accept: pillows, bed linens, tablecloths, or towels.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
2/11/2021: We have a new warehouse!
Thanks to the generosity of CHAT supporter Tom Van Overbeek, CHAT has secured a fantastic warehouse space that's more than twice as large as our previous warehouse space. This will give our furniture program much-needed additional storage space and better truck access as well as giving our food program more work space for sorting and distribution. Thank you to everyone who looked out for a space for us. This will be a huge benefit for CHAT's housing residents!
Warehouse manager Dan Joseph is ecstatic about the new warehouse space!
We operate a furniture warehouse in Chico for our residents, most of whom were homeless or lost everything they owned in one of our recent wildfire events, and we gladly accept donated items.
After we moved our first family into the first residence, we realized that they would need more than a place to live in order to create a home, they would also need furniture and other housewares. Nothing like that existed in Chico so we rented our own warehouse and started taking in donated furniture and giving or loaning pieces to new residents as needed.
This is an essential service for folks who may be coming from homelessness, a shelter, or a domestic abuse situation. Useful basic furniture can add to a sense of stability and safety, and residents are enormously grateful for the furniture for their new homes.
If you have items you'd like to donate, send us an email at email@example.com, along with a picture of the items you wish to donate, and someone will get back to you.
