The Green Chair Project needs your furnishing donations to assist our neighbors in need! Help those transitioning from homelessness by de-cluttering and cleaning out spaces with items you no longer use. We are so grateful to our community for their generosity and willingness to part with furniture and household items to help others experience the comforts of home.
