Program 1

Furniture Essentials

Like a Food Bank supplies food to the disadvantaged, a Furniture Bank provides newly housed, single parent families with furniture, including kitchen tables to share meals, sofas and chairs to sit and converse or watch TV and bed’s to sleep in. All the things that most of us take for granted. Provisions are gently used and donated by community members in Bucks County.
