About Furniture Bank

Lots of people have usable furniture they don’t want anymore.
Lots of other people need furniture but can’t afford it.

Furniture Bank helps both!

How it works

Need Furniture?

1. Redwood clients, and those of our 45 current partner agencies across Simcoe County, will be able to access furniture through a referral to our Furniture Bank.

2. An appointment will be made with our staff for the client to choose their furniture from the available inventory.

3. Furniture will be curated, packaged, and delivered to clients based on household size for a nominal fee.

Become a Monthly Patron of the Furniture Bank

After two years of running the Furniture Bank, we have gathered important data on the marginal costs of putting together a package of furniture (ie. the direct costs, not including overhead) and what our average client can afford.

The gap is about $170 per package.

We have set a goal of covering this gap for 8 clients each month and we are looking for 14 donors of $100 monthly or 27 donors of $50 monthly, or some combination of the two, to help us reach this goal. 

Each dollar donated by Furniture Bank Patrons will go directly to getting furniture to a neighbour who needs it. Each month. That’s a very tangible way to have a positive impact on our community, so we encourage you to partner with us in this way!

Thank you!
