Donate Furniture

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.

We have a monthly furniture and household goods collection on the 1st Saturday of each month behind the Bethel United Methodist Church (141 Greenwood Avenue) from 10am to 12noon.   If you are dropping off things, please see the list below to make sure it is something we need.

Please note that our ability to pick up furniture is very limited, so if donations can be dropped off at our storage facility (Prime Storage, 20 Old Ridgebury Road in Danbury) it is much appreciated.   Please call us at 203-733-5880 with questions.

We are accepting donations of the following household goods:
Twin and full size bedding – sheets, blankets, comforters — blankets and comforters needed!!
Kitchen and bathroom towels – all sizes
Dishes
Silverware and kitchen utensils
Pots and pans — needed!!
Toasters and Toaster ovens
Glasses — needed!!
