Help Getting a Refrigerator


I am in need of a refrigerator ASAP. Mine went out two weeks ago and I have been buying bags of ice to keep what little food I can in there cool. I am a single mom with two young children on a fixed income and would appreciate any help at all with this matter. Thank you and God Bless.

Check in the yellow pages of your telephone book under the heading Used Appliances or Appliances Used.

You can find some very reasonably priced appliances. My stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer were purchased at a used appliance store.

Most of these stores will deliver.

Try It is nationwide, and there is probably one in your area. You can look up the rules for the site and join if you wish. It offers things for free, and is a good source for both getting and getting rid of things. I got a bike for free from it, and got rid of a lot of things I no longer wanted.

It is instead of .com.
Then find your state and click on it to find the group closest to you.

Hope this helps,

Have you tried calling any local churches? Some of them may be able to help you.

You could also check with your local thrift stores. In my area, the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) sell everything for half price every saturday, and some of them deliver as well.

Freecycle is a great tool and so is Craigslist. Check them both out! Do any of your relatives or friends have a spare one in their basement or garage they could give up? Best idea... put out the word. Email everyone you know and let them know you are looking (and not picky!)

I agree with all these ideas but first check with all your friends and relatives to see if anyone has a spare frig they may not even want.

Here in Cincinnati we have an organization called People Working Cooperatively that gives new refrigerators and water heaters to low income people in need. There is a similar program across the river in KY, so there might be one in your town too.

Call your local City Hall. If the person who answers doesn't know, speak to one of your elected officials. Spend long enough talking to them that they understand your need.

This program also does home repairs, gutter cleaning, smoke detectors, etc. They brought me a brand new refrigerator and took away the old one. There are income limits, but they are very fair. Good luck.
