CARITAS Furniture Drive at RRCB
Saturday, May 11, 2019
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., North (back) Parking Lot
CARITAS helps our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycles of addiction and homelessness to reclaim their dignity. CARITAS has four programs — The Emergency Shelter, The Furniture Bank, The Healing Place, and CARITAS Works — that provide a pathway from crisis to stability for families in the Richmond area.
RRCB is hosting a collection drive Saturday, May 11, 2019. The main focus of the drive is furniture and other household basics. Please bring your donations during the designated times above and volunteers will be available to help you.
You can help fill a newly acquired home with basic necessities for victims of natural disaster, domestic violence, poverty, and mental and physical disabilities. Your donations go DIRECTLY to those in need! Your previously loved items will find new life in the home of a local family.
If you have any further questions, please contact Chris Macturk.
- Kitchen Utensils
- Plates & Bowls
- Pots & Pans
- Kitchen Tables
Not sure if you should donate something? Ask yourself if you would feel comfortable giving it to a friend or family member.
4-6 volunteers are needed for each time slot. Youth and families are encouraged to help, too. As a volunteer, you will be monitoring the POD, greeting donors, and helping unload and load donations.
*UPDATED TIME SLOTS*
- 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Additional volunteers are needed to help with Home Pick-up on Saturday. It will be helpful to have two people per vehicle, so you may sign up as a driver with your personal truck, SUV, or van, or you can sign up as a helper and ride as the passenger. The number of volunteers needed will be determined by the number of home pick up requests.
If you have items you would like to donate, but need some assistance, you may sign up for Home Pick-up. We are only offering pick-ups on Saturday.
