How You Can Help

Contact Us

Founded in January 2015, we are an outreach program of the Setauket Presbyterian Church that seeks to redistribute good quality furniture to those in need.  We accept donations of essential household furnishings and offer them free of charge to individuals who need assistance turning their living space into a comfortable home.  We partner with other Long Island nonprofits, who refer recipients to us.  Rather than being unnecessarily discarded, good furniture is given new life, benefiting both our neighbors and our environment.  Our warehouse is located in Port Jefferson Station.  Individuals and families referred to us can make an appointment to come to the warehouse and choose the furniture that they need.  We offer the dignity of selecting one’s own furnishings.

Who We Are

We offer many different opportunities for volunteers of all ages:

  • Go on a pick-up run.  At least twice a month, we send a group of volunteers out into the community to pick-up donated furniture from homes.  We handle all the scheduling and will provide you with a volunteer coordinator for the day.  You provide a group of energetic volunteers!  It’s a great time, great exercise, and a great team-building opportunity!

  • Work in the warehouse.  Furniture moves in and out of our warehouse very quickly. We need lots of help receiving donations, cleaning furniture, deciding how to organize it, and greeting clients.  Our warehouse offers hands-on service experience with or without heavy lifting! 
  • Administrative assistance.  Can you type information into a simple database?  Do you enjoy writing thank you letters, designing promotional materials, or making phone calls?  We’d love your help!
  • Grant writing.  We do not charge for any of our services, so we rely entirely on grants and contributions to support our work.  If you have strong writing skills or experience in grant writing, you can help us keep our doors open!
