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.
ESSENTIAL FURNISHINGS PICKUP SERVICE
We offer FREE FIRST FLOOR pickup service in Wake County for ESSENTIAL FURNISHINGS IN GOOD CONDITION. For a $50 PREPAID FEE (payable when you submit your pickup request form) we will schedule pickups that require stair/elevator access to an upper/lower level in a home, apartment complex, or high-rise building and pickups that require paid street parking/parallel parking. No third floor or above pickups requiring stair access, please.
IMPORTANT! Our movers only pick up sofas, loveseats, dining/kitchen tables and chairs, dressers and upholstered chairs. Furniture MUST be clean and in good condition without any rips, tears, stains, pet hairs, pet/tobacco odors, excessive wear or structural damage. We reserve the right to decline your donation, if upon arrival and inspection, the quality of your donation does not match the appearance of photos submitted and as certified on your pickup request form and/or as promised by verbal description given to our donation coordinator. WE DO NOT ACCEPT SLEEPER SOFAS. PLEASE ALSO NOTE OTHER ITEMS WE CANNOT ACCEPT IN OUR LIST BELOW. If you meet criteria for donating ESSENTIAL FURNISHINGS, you may add Secondary Items and Household Accessories for pickup. For a list of these accepted items, please start your pickup request form below; the form will guide you to options for donating Secondary Items and Household Accessories.
If you have an item that you believe is of exceptional value, such as a rug, artwork, a decorative item or a piece of furniture that is not on our acceptance list, please email us here to see if we can put it to good use!
**Due to space limitations in our truck, we cannot pick up items that have not been pre-approved. If you have multiple large items for pickup or are in need of a whole house furniture pickup, please email us here with photos and details about the contents of your pickup.
