Love INC’s furniture ministry was created to provide quality, used furniture to families in our community who are in need. Requests are processed through the Clearinghouse.
Out of respect for those who will be receiving the furniture items, Whatcom Love INC’s Furniture Ministry has the right to refuse items that are in poor condition. We accept items that are in good, clean, gently used condition. Whatcom Love INC is not equipped to repair furniture. Therefore we cannot take items that are broken or missing hardware. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself; “Would I give a family member any of the items I am donating?”
We are currently accepting and distributing the following:
- Mattresses and box springs- Queen, Full, Twin
- Headboards, foot boards, frames
- Bedroom furniture- dressers & night stands
- Kitchen/dining room tables & chairs
- Living room furniture- sofas (no sleeper sofas), love seats, chairs, coffee & lamp tables
- Futons (only with mattress)
- Small desks
- Small bookcases (36″ and smaller)
- Bedding (i.e. sheets, pillowcases, pillows, blankets, quilts, mattress pads)
- Basic house ware items – pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc.
When donating items that come in pieces or require parts for assemble, please provide a labeled zip lock bag for the parts or label and tape the parts together.
Thank you for considering these items and their condition when donating. We are sorry if your item is not on the list and we are unable to receive it.
We appreciate the support of DeWaard and Bode and Northwest Sleep Solutions for their donations of “gently used” mattresses. We also appreciate the support of Griffith Furniture for donating their “gently used” mattresses and other types of furniture.
To request OR donate any of the items listed above, please call the client line (360-671-6201).
*Here’s what some of our recent recipients of furniture had to say*
“My daughter and I have something to sit on while I am reading to her. Thank you so much.”
“How can I thank you? I no longer have to sleep on the floor.”
“I just wanted to send a huge ‘Thank You’ for helping my family with furniture during our move from the homeless shelter! I can’t express enough how grateful I am for LOVE INC! Besides the beds and furniture, you even included clean sheets, pillows and warm blankets. As a mother, it is so comforting to know that each of my children have their own bed to sleep in now and are warm at night! Your name says it all! Love INC didn’t just provide tangible furniture, Love INC provided my family with LOVE! My children would be sleeping on cold hardwood floors without the help and love that you blessed our family with.”
