Downsizing? Don’t know what to do with it all?

This from Aline K:

People who are downsizing or planning to downsize often have trouble figuring out what to do with all their stuff, particularly furniture. Here’s a way to “Kondo-ize” your home and help others at the same time. Fresh Start Furniture Bank will take your furniture and household good and provide it free of charge to qualified Massachusetts residents in need. This year, FSFB expects to provide 24,000 items to as many as 800 families.

FSFB is currently seeking the following items, most of which are too big or bulky to donate to the Women’s Alliance Rummage Sale:

  • Sofas/love seats
  • Coffee tables
  • Small bookcases
  • Small storage cabinets
  • Lamps
  • Kitchen tables
  • Full- and queen-size beds
  • Basic appliances (except coffee makers)
  • Twin-size blankets
  • King-size comforters
  • Drinking glasses

All donations are tax deductible. FSFB accepts items in good, clean condition only. You can drop off items at 16 Brent Drive in Hudson during business hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to noon and Saturdays from 9 am to noon. To arrange for limited pickups of larger items, call 508-485-2080.
