Moving Tip If You Are Selling Your Silicon Valley Home

Moving is a good time to sort out extra furniture that does not quite fit in your new location.  Perhaps you are scaling down in size from a larger home;  selling a second home; or it’s “just the right time” to get rid of your older furniture and upgrade for a fresh start and a new style in your new home?

Instead of selling your used furniture and household items (which is often time consuming for minimal $ return) would you consider donating them to families who are emerging from homelessness and have nothing to furnish their affordable apartment?

In August 2009 the San Jose Furniture Bank was set up to warehouse and distribute furniture to battered women with children, victims of disasters and working families just coming out of homelessness.  Here’s what SJFB is looking for:

  • mattresses, box springs, bed frames
  • dressers, chests, armoires, mirrors, night stands, tv stands
  • dining tables and chairs
  • cribs, changing tables, highchairs
  • buffets, hutches, china cabinets
  • coffee tables, sofa tables, end tables
  • sofas, loveseats, armchairs, ottomans
  • lamps, kitchenware, linens, microwave ovens

The San Jose Furniture Bank is a program of the National Furniture Bank Association and can be contacted at SanJose@nationalfurniturebank.org

Here’s what they do NOT take:

  • anything torn, stained, broken, or structurally unsound
  • desks, file cabinets, office furniture
  • outdoor furniture
  • large appliances
  • pianos
  • game tables
  • exercise equipment
  • hospital beds
  • waterbeds
  • knick-knacks
  • light fixtures, window treatments, carpeting
  • computers
  • books, clothing, toys, car seats, strollers, playpen
  • large entertainment centers

Thank you for your consideration.
