I just wanted to add a resource for your website. The Community Warehouse collects furniture, cookware, small appliances, and linens to distribute to men and women who are coming out of shelters and setting up an apartment of their own. These items are free to the clients (unlike Goodwill and Salvation Army) as long as they are registered with a shelter of some kind. The Community Warehouse has drop-off sites in NE Portland (3969 NE MLK Blvd) and in SW Portland (8745 SW Canyon Lane). For larger items, they will send a truck to your home to pick-up. See their website at http://www.communitywarehouse.org. Phone number is (503) 235-8786.
Thanks for all you do, Jane” – Julia Gies
(NOTE: Setting up that first apartment or needing to replace a broken teapot? The Warehouse also runs The Estate Store at the MLK location. Great way to stretch your budget and help a good cause! Click on the website blog to see featured items.)
