Many low-income families cannot afford to furnish their homes
Across every city in the world, the middle and upper classes discard plenty of furniture every day. Meanwhile, those on a budget may struggle to furnish their home with basic necessities.
Solution: Nonprofit gathers unwanted furniture and places it with agency-designated families
In a Toronto suburb, an area nonprofit gathers unwanted furniture from local homes. Just call the designated phone number and a truck will arrive to pick up your extra things. These furnishings are stored until they are placed with families in need, referred to the furniture bank by community shelters, churches, and social welfare agencies.
