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 toward 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. Then request a pick-up from our Furniture Bank staff.

Step 2:

Gather the items we need the most! Get your friends, family, and coworkers in on the action!  Collect items like pillows, towels, or blankets with your family or office. You can also shop off our Amazon lists: shop for The Healing Place for Men or The Healing Place for Women.

Step 3: 

Get your donations to CARITAS! You can either drop off donations or request we pick them up.  Drop off donations of furniture and household essentials Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 2220 Stockton Street. Please call ahead before you drop items off to ensure they are appropriate for our program: (804) 358-0964. Disposal of items we cannot give to families costs CARITAS $11,000 a year that we would much rather use to support our neighbors in need.

How to Drop Off Donations
