Now accepting furniture donations!

IRC is now welcoming donations of the following new or gently used furniture items.

Through an exciting new logistics initiative, IRC in Elizabeth is thrilled to begin accepting furniture donations to support new arrivals and clients in need of essential furniture. Your thoughtfulness will help ease the burden of furnishing homes for newly arrived refugees. Help us welcome our newest neighbors through recycling your gently used furniture. Please note IRC cannot accept mattresses, sofas or any items with upholstery or fabric.

IRC in Elizabeth is currently accepting the following:

  • Kitchen tables and chairs (complete sets only)
  • Twin and full bed frames
  • Dressers
  • Nightstands
  • Coffee Tables
  • End tables

How to Donate:

Pickup is done by a contracted moving and storage company and pickup address must fall within the company’s service area. Most of NJ is covered.

Donations should be new or gently used furniture without upholstery. IRC does not have the capacity to repair any furniture before distributing to refugee families, especially as our apartment set-ups must be completed quite quickly once an arrival is confirmed and an apartment secured.

If you would like to donate any of these items, please email a clear photo of the items to IRC’s logistics and housing specialist Jacob.Wasserman [at] rescue.org, along with the following information:
