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.
There's also:freecycle.org or call a local church for a deserving family in need?.
A Domestic Violence organization; churches that help those in need?
There is a Vietnam vets organization that will come to you with a truck. You can schedule a pick up online at: www.vva.org
