      Thank you Lucie. I have sent an email to Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa (SASC Ottawa) to let them know. Have you have tried all the charities on this page? If you need other suggestions, please let me know and I will be happy to look for other charities that might be interested in the furniture that you would like to give away.

  3. Hi, is this list updated?

      Hi Anne, yes the list is up-to-date. I am happy to add more if you know of other Canadian Registered charities. Just let me know and I will look into adding them. Thanks.

  4. I have furniture to donate. However, I also have a mattress and box spring. The mattress has always had a mattress cover. Is this denotable or not? If not, how does one get rid of this. The furniture is in a Retirement Home.
    Thanks

  5. Have office furniture Travel agency to donate Needs to be picked up

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hello Ms Green, thank you for contacting CharityWishList.ca. There is a list of charities in Ottawa that are interested in furniture donations. Since it is office furniture that you want to donate, I would suggest you may want to first try the Boys & Girls Club. The furniture might be of interest for homework clubs or to their clients. Please contact the charities directly donations of furniture in Ottawa if you have anything remaining after contacting the charities listed, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will look into additional charities that might be interested.

  6. I have a bed frame and headboard that I need to get rid of for a double mattress. Would you be interested in this furniture at all?

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Debra, thank you for your question. You would need to contact the charity of your choice directly. CharityWishList.ca is more of a directory. It doesn’t itself accept donations. Please see the list of suggestions of charities accepting furniture in Ottawa and their contact info at http://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/ottawa/furniture-home-office-ottawa-area/ for example, Saint Vincent de Paul at tel: (613) 722-7166. If after contacting the charities on the list you still need other options, please contact me again and I will look for other options for you. Thank you for your interest in finding a charity that will make use of the frame, double mattress and headboard. I am certain a new home can be found for them. – Michelle Beaupre, ChairtyWishList.ca

    • What kind of bed frame is it?

  7. Allison Malcolm

    Hello, I have a sofa bed in good condition, but no way to transport. Are there any agencies that pick up sofa beds?

  8. We have Dad’s house up for sale. All his personal possessions and ‘stuff’ have been removed. It is still furnished and equipped. Would you be interested in doing a clear out when it sells? We would like to donate everything to people who need it. Do you want to see what there is? It is in Manotick.

      Hello Judy, thank you for your message. CharityWishList.ca helps people find charities near them that want what you want to give away. It doesn’t actually collect anything itself. But here is the link to charities who might be interested … http://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/ottawa/furniture-home-office-ottawa-area/

      My guess would be your best chance of having it all picked up by the same organization at the same time, would be to contact HWF (Helping with Furniture), or IMMIGRANT WOMEN SERVICES OTTAWA, or MATTHEW HOUSE OTTAWA – FURNITURE BANK. See the link provided above for contact info. I was in the same boat as you once, which is why I created this website. I know what it is like to try to give stuff away. It can be quite difficult. Hope this information assists you. Best of luck. I’m sure there are folks on that list who would love to have the remaining stuff. Regards, Michelle Beaupre, owner CharityWishList.ca

  9. I was wondering which of the above would be best to contact re. a couch with a pull out bed (high-quality, excellent condition) that I have to donate but need picked up from a condo building (with an elevator).

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Adam, if you are within their pick-up area (see listing here), I would suggest try HWF (Helping with Furniture) first. Their website has a map of where they pick-up from in Ottawa. If you are outside of their pick-up area, then maybe try Matthew House-Furniture Bank (if you don’t mind paying a small fee); or Immigrant Women’s Shelter. (All listed on the my webpage.)

  10. I have one tall and one lower dresser in excellent shape that was left to me in a will. The finish looks like wood, and looks like new, no scratches, excellent condition. I am retired and can not move the furniture from my basement myself but if any organization could use it I would be happy to donate it. One is a tall dresser/storage for linen chest and the other is a lower chest of drawers and they match together. I am in Nepean not in the HWF area and am not able to assist with the moving costs.
    Thank you,
    Kim
