We collect furniture and household goods donations on the 1st Saturday of each month from 10 am to 12 noon at South Street Self Storage — 39-A South Street in Danbury — See list below for items we need and how to get them to us

When a homeless person gets a room or apartment, often he/she moves in with only the clothes on their back.   One of the important services provided by OTS is to supply them with a complete set of furniture and household items. Most people coming off the streets move into rooms or small apartments.   There is very limited space, and they have basic needs.  Below is a list of items we are currently accepting.  Items we really need are in italics.  

We know how much everyone wants to contribute and we are so grateful but if you have items that are not on this list please find another home for them (some ideas are below our list). The key to the success of Off The Streets is that we keep it simple! And thank you for making sure any electronic items are working.

  • Kitchen Tables (with or without chairs)
  • Dressers — without attached mirrors
  • Recliners and easy chairs
