The drive will take place in the front parking lot of Eastchester High School, 580 White Plains Road, rain or shine.
Only moderately-sized, basic HOME FURNITURE IN GOOD CONDITION will be accepted.
The following items will be collected:
Kitchen Tables and Chairs
Mattresses and Box Springs (sorry, no kings)
Side Tables, Night Stands
Mirrors (no larger than 4’)
Sofas, Chairs (sorry, no fold-out sleepers– too heavy!)
Rugs (max 8’x10′)
Get started on your “spring cleaning” and bring your gently-used household furniture to the Furniture Drive. It’s “recycling with a difference” because it will go directly to families who need it. Tax receipt will be available at drive.
