Furniture Ministry Reopening

After a brief hiatus due to the Covid resurgence, the Furniture Ministry is reopening and we need your help! We especially need dishes, flatware, pots and pans, and lamps. Donations can be brought to the warehouse on Mondays from 1:00-4:00 p.m. We will also be picking up donations from church members and others on a selective case-by-case basis. Also, we need volunteers to sort and tag items in the warehouse and to assist with pick-ups. Contact us at 336-212-2937. Even during the downtime, the Furniture Ministry was able to serve 13 families, deliver eight beds and mattresses to Allied Churches, and pick up several donations of furniture. This unique First Presbyterian Ministry continues to bring vital assistance to our Alamance County brothers and sisters in Christ at their time of greatest need. Thank you for your support!

 

Our mission is to provide good, useful furnishings to those in need, treating each client graciously, with Christian hospitality. Our service area is Alamance County.

SERVE BY BECOMING A VOLUNTEER

The Furniture Ministry Program collects slightly-used furniture and beds to deliver to families who have experienced homelessness, domestic abuse, fire or limited income. These are items that we take for granted each day. This ministry consists of a group of volunteers who work throughout the month to pick up donated furniture and household items in order to deliver the second Saturday of each month. Additional volunteers assist on Saturday morning deliveries from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 noon. All are welcome to attend and assist in a delivery workday.
