Furniture Bank of Central Ohio provides furniture to individuals and families in need so that we can achieve our goal for all families to live in furnished homes. We believe this will strengthen family units, improve quality of life, and help build a better community.

But we can’t do this alone! If you are interested in donating furniture, you can do it easily either online or by phone. Below is more information about what we accept and how the process works. We reserve the right to limit items picked up based on inventory and warehouse space. One essential item is required for a pick up.
