Looking for a great hands-on team-building experience? Thanks to generous donations by Sauder Woodworking, volunteers can work together to assemble, sand, and paint kitchen tables and other furniture items from kits. No experience required – we provide the instructions, tools, and safety equipment!

The Furniture Bank can accommodate furniture assembly groups of up to 10 individuals.

Showroom volunteers sort and organize donated items, organize housewares, and help clients select dishes, cookware, and linens. Client Showroom Assistants also help clean and organize furniture.

Office Assistants help schedule pickups of donated furniture and deliveries of client furniture. Office volunteers also help by preparing donor packets and writing thank you letters to current donors.
