Donating Furniture to Charity in Georgia

Does anyone know of a charity that will pick up in Woodstock, Georgia? I have furniture that I would like to give away. Atlanta Furniture and Salvation Army don't service this area.

If the furniture is clean and undamaged by animals

or people, I'd think you could simply set it out

by the street and put a sign on it saying, "Free to

Good Home", and see what happens.

Of course, this might apply only if you live in a

neighborhood. Many (even affluent) neighborhoods

want to play with recycling things, or they know

someone who truly needs the furniture items.

I'd much rather give things to my neighbors if they

can use them than to have anyone make any

person pay for it like the thrift stores and used

furniture businesses do. Most of the people

shopping in those places don't have enough money

as it is. If there's any way I can help them, I want

to do that.

If you live in a college town, almost anything

you set out by the street with a "freebie" sign on it

will disappear like magic.

I was taught that "Charity Begins at Home, and

extends outward in ever increasing circles".

If you do not live in a neighborhood (like out in the

country or an inaccessible area), then this might

not work for you.

I hope this helps.

We called the local Habitat for Humanity when we had to get rid of some furniture. They were very happy to come pick it up! I was able to find them through the phone book, but they have a website, also.

Here are a couple of other suggestions:

Easter Seals

Purple Hearts

A homeless (or any kind of) shelter in your area
