Volunteers collect, warehouse, and deliver donated furniture, free of charge, to needy families in the Annandale, Bailey’s Crossroads, and Culmore areas. The furniture is stored in a building donated by Annandale United Methodist Church and in a storage area provided by Fairfax County. ACCA receives and screens requests for furniture through a fax referral that involves Fairfax County human service and specialized agencies, churches, and schools. ACCA churches and community volunteers take turns providing teams of volunteers to work at the warehouse located at 6935 Columbia Pike on Saturday mornings.
Volunteers are needed to pick up and deliver furniture, communicate with volunteers by phone (in Spanish, English, and other languages), help with administrative tasks in the warehouse, and key in computer information (which volunteers can do from home using a program like Microsoft Word).
Donations of useable, gently used furniture are always needed. Sofa beds and king-sized beds can NOT be accepted. Please see guidelines.
To participate in this program, either by donating furniture or by volunteering, contact Don and Mary Lee Di Spirito at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-256-9513.
To request furniture, contact the Fairfax County Coordinated Services Planning office at 703-222-0880.
