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.

Here’s a status of what we are taking at the present time (Jan 2019).   If you items we need, we collect furniture on the 1st Saturday of the month behind the Bethel United Methodist Church (141 Greenwood Ave) from 10am to noon.   We also have storage facilities at Prime Storage (20 Old Ridgebury Road) in Danbury and can meet you there at other times.   Our ability to pick up furniture is limited.   Call 203-733-5880 to contact us.
