Donating to the CARITAS Furniture Bank

Each item of furniture, each appliance, each plate, and each blanket that you donate to the CARITAS Furniture Bank goes directly towards furnishing the new homes of our most vulnerable neighbors. These gently-used items allow families to eat together around a dining room table. They mean that a child no longer has to sleep on the floor. Because of you, lives are transformed and dignity is restored. Thank you!

Why Donate to CARITAS?

    • 100% of essential household items go directly into the homes of clients in need.
    • CARITAS makes it EASY. We provide a pick-up service in your home for those hard-to-handle items like mattresses, couches and dressers.
    • Your donation is tax-deductible; a receipt will be provided at time of donation.
    • We keep your contributions in the Richmond area. Your donations will help a local neighbor in need.

How Can You Donate?

Step 1:

Donations are connected directly to families in need, so please review your items to ensure they are suitable for CARITAS.

Step 2:

Get your friends, family, and coworkers in on the action! Host a furniture or household goods drive. Go big by requesting a truck to be dropped off so your neighborhood or congregation can fill it. Go small by picking one item like pillows, towels, or blankets to collect with your family or office.
