Declutter Your Household Items and Help a Neighbor

As you declutter during Get Organized Month (January), donate your used furniture, houseware items and bedding. Summit County Ohio residents can call CORE (Community Outreach Resources Exchange) to arrange for free pickup by calling 330-379-3188. CORE is a used furniture bank sponsored by several Summit County area churches, businesses, and individuals.

CORE serves more than 700 neighbors in need annually, providing them with more than 3500 used furniture items including beds, dressers, sofas, chairs, dinette sets, microwave ovens and houseware items. For more info go to CORE.

Really the only place I know around here (GA) that takes furniture is the Goodwill and they will come pick it up. But I like the charities and groups that leave cards to let you know when they're going to be in the area. It's always good to be able to help people with things one doesn't need.
