About

Come be a shopper in our warehouse - you will work with another volunteer to guide client families through the warehouse helping them to select furniture and houseware items that will furnish their home. Shifts are 9am - noon and available Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Get started by attending a short orientation & furniture bank tour.

Client families come to NW Furniture Bank by referral from over 200 agencies. Items are donated by furniture companies, hotels, restaurants and the community. NWFB is the consummate champion of "reuse". Through our programs we distribute - and diverted from the landfill - over 3 million pounds of furniture and mattresses annually.

The engine of NW Furniture Bank is our volunteers who fulfill our mission through their dedication, annually we have over 500 volunteers who give us some 10,000 hours of their time. Volunteers include retirees, civic groups, corporate teams, school and church clubs. Volunteers assist in the warehouse, sort incoming goods, take clients shopping, provide office support, do furniture assembly/repair and drive trucks.
