Our friends at CIRI are helping to resettle over 100 refugee families from Afghanistan in Fairfield County. They are in desperate need of furniture to help furnish housing for the refugees (who arrive with NOTHING).
If you are Spring cleaning and have any of the items below, please email or call KC Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-401-4254 and include photos of the items.
We will keep an inventory list and when CIRI has a need (which is almost weekly as they find new housing for families), I will contact you arrange pickup from your home. We can even help with movers.
Items needed (bolded items are especially needed):
Dressers, dining tables w chairs, small kitchen tables (seating 4), end tables, bedside tables.
Arm chairs loveseats, ottomans/poufs, rugs.
Wall art (no images of people or animals), mirrors, lamps, floor lamps.
Cribs, changing tables, highchairs IF in great condition.
Sheets if new and packaged, either twin or Double sizes only.
Bear in mind, these items are often picked up by two women, and could be carried up narrow stairs.
Drivers may decide to reject some items at pickup.
