JRCC FURNITURE DEPOT

The JRCC Furniture Depot stands as a beacon of hope, a non-profit program committed to providing free furniture to families and individuals in need. Nestled in Thornhill, Ontario, it operates from a spacious 13,000 square foot warehouse, graciously accepting donations of gently used furniture from the community.

Their inventory boasts essential items ranging from tables, chairs, desks, mattresses, to sofas, ensuring that those in need can find the comfort and dignity they deserve. Since its inception in 2014, the Furniture Depot has tirelessly worked to give over 36,000 items of used furniture to families, simultaneously diverting these items from looming landfills.

Operating partly as a social enterprise, the Furniture Depot ingeniously employs income from pickup fees paid by donors to foster financial sustainability, ensuring the continuity of their noble cause.

Who benefits from their benevolence? The Furniture Depot collaborates with over 60 social service agencies across York Region and Toronto, extending its reach to vulnerable groups such as new immigrants, low-income families with young children, students, individuals transitioning from shelters to stable housing, and elderly individuals relocating. Astonishingly, 91% of their clients find themselves below the poverty line.

In 2022 alone, a staggering 96% of clients arrived without furniture or basic necessities, underscoring the vital role the Furniture Depot plays in their lives.

The impact? Profound. Close to 16,000 clients and 5,300 households have been served since 2014, each testimonial a testament to the transformative power of their work. Client surveys reveal a reduction in expenses for furnishing homes, allowing families to allocate resources towards other essentials like food and clothing. Moreover, the provision of furniture not only enhances the physical space but also uplifts the spirits of clients and their children, fostering a sense of well-being and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
