Unfortunately, we suspended our Furniture Donation Program in 2018. We greatly appreciate the time you invested in contacting us about your donations and apologize for the inconvenience. If you would like to connect to another charitable furniture donation program, we recommend the San Diego Rescue Mission, AMVETS, San Diego Habitat for Humanity, or The Salvation Army.
