Recycling Furniture for Families is primarily a faith-based ministry, relying on free-will financial support from our community. There are many ways you can support RF4F with your donations. Here are just a few:
Deliver household items to our client families
$32 covers the fuel expenses for the delivery of furniture to our client families for one day.
Keep our delivery trucks running smoothly
RF4F uses volunteer groups to help deliver furniture to our clients as well as pick up furniture donations from the community. These trucks need some TLC with all the wear and tear they get. $65 pays for the maintenance on our trucks to keep them running for one month.
Fund a family
Currently it costs RF4F approximately $250 to provide household furniture to a family. This includes a bed for each family member, a sofa, kitchen table and chairs, and other items such as dressers, coffee tables, end tables, etc. On average each household receives 15 pieces of furniture along with boxes of household basics. Costs include operating trucks to pick up furniture donations and a large warehouse where furniture is cleaned and organized to make it easy for the families to pick out their items. Your donation today means one less child, woman or man is sleeping and eating on the floor tomorrow.
Keep the lights on at RF4F
In order to store and display our furniture we need space! It costs around $1,100 for our utility bills each month.
Note from an appreciative RF4F client family
“I would like to thank you and your ministry for blessing us with items we truly needed for our new home…The woman who helped my wife and me is truly a servant with a servant’s heart and the love and compassion of Jesus in her. May God continue to bless you and your awesome ministry.”
