The Furniture Project – Omaha

The Furniture Project is a beacon of hope for families facing hardship in the Omaha, Nebraska area. Founded in 2013 by firefighter Drew Gerken and his compassionate colleagues, this non-profit organization emerged from a simple yet profound encounter with a family sleeping on the floor, devoid of any furniture.

At the heart of The Furniture Project's mission lies a commitment to providing essential household items to those in need. They rely on the generosity of the community, accepting donations of gently used furniture, appliances, kitchenware, linens, and more at their warehouse. Drop-offs are welcome Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3 pm, with extended hours on most Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. For added convenience, they offer free pickup of donations within the Omaha metro area.

Once received, these donations become lifelines for local families experiencing various forms of hardship, from homelessness to domestic violence or recovering from disasters. By furnishing their homes with these essential items, The Furniture Project aims to restore dignity and stability to these families, empowering them to rebuild their lives.

Behind the scenes, The Furniture Project is powered by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers who share a common goal: to make a positive impact on the lives of others while promoting sustainability. Their tireless efforts not only help those in need but also contribute to reducing waste by giving donated items a new lease on life instead of sending them to landfills.

Currently, The Furniture Project is on a mission to assist families affected by the recent tornado in Omaha. They are seeking donations of kitchen tables and chairs, couches, small appliances, place settings, cookware, linens, and new pillows to provide comfort and support during this challenging time.

In essence, The Furniture Project embodies the spirit of community and compassion, proving that by coming together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others while building a brighter, more sustainable future for all.
