About NW Furniture Bank
117 Puyallup Ave, Tacoma, WA 98421, US
NW Furniture Bank helps restore hope, dignity and stability in our community by recycling donated furniture to people in need.
The NW Furniture Bank is the primary community resource for local agencies to assist clients with their furniture needs and offers a unique opportunity for our community to donate and volunteer.
NWFB works with local Tacoma/Pierce County agencies to provide a once in a lifetime gift of furniture to individuals and families in need. Clients are screened and referred by agency caseworkers, so furniture goes to those who are helping themselves reach self-sufficiency.
We serve victims of domestic abuse, people suffering loss from fire and natural disasters, foster homes and especially families coming from transitional housing who are trying to rebuild their lives.
