We started with three families in 2010 that had an apparent need of furniture and bedding. Although there were thrift stores on Long Island that sold furniture for a very low price, many families still found it difficult to purchase basic home furnishings. It was also observed that at the same time, often other families would discard sofas, couches, tables and chairs that were in fairly good conditions. These items were being thrown out because there was no recognized resource to donate these items. And Furniture For All is the bridge to connecting the needs of those who are in need of furniture and those that have good furniture that they want to donate and not discard.
In addition to furniture and household items, And Furniture For All also donates food and Gas cards for emergency situations to families when available. Occasionally we also have clothes and coats for children and adults.
