Iowa City's Furniture Project Looking for Donations
IOWA CITY - If you've started to do some Spring cleaning and realize that you want to get rid of that old couch or table, you can donate that unwanted furniture to help someone in need.
Iowa City's furniture project is asking for help to re-stock their supply for local families of good used furniture.
Some of the things they need include arm chairs, beds with box springs, and couches.
"We're continually getting in donations," said Mandy Butler, ReStore director. "It's just that the need is so much more overwhelming than it used to be so this is what you see - an empty warehouse."
If you'd like to donate items to the Furniture Project, you may drop off furniture at the ReStore located at 2401 Scott Blvd. SE in Iowa City during business hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) Wednesday through Saturday. You can also call ReStore at 319-338-5687 to schedule a pick-up for donated furniture. An appointment is needed and the cost is $10.
