Got bulky stuff to get rid of this Fall?  Get organized and get rid of it all for FREE by the end of October, 2016.  Here's a checklist for getting rid of bulky stuff:




1) Donate it to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, based right here in Lynn, MA.

Fill out the form for in-home pickup of good-condition furniture by clicking on this link: Furniture Donation Inquiry
Items must be clean and usable. The Coalition for the Homeless takes kitchen tables & chairs, couches & sofa chairs, ottomans, hutches, end tables, coffee tables, bed frames, dressers, bookshelves, cabinets, rugs, lamps, dishes, pots & pans, and blankets & linens. Your donation helps low-income and formerly homeless families furnish their apartments at no cost to them. The Coalition's phone number is 781-595-7570 x13. 

2) Other Pickup & Drop-Off Options

Here are other organizations that offer free pickup and drop-off of your living, dining and bedroom furniture in good-condition. Most only require 1-2 weeks’ notice for pick up.

Short on time? Check out the following websites for drop-off locations, hours, and to check that they will accept your donation.
