Many families come to Family Promise’s shelter program with few or no belongings. When they move into their own homes, they need basic furniture and household items. We often help families who have moved out of our shelter program and into our Housing Stability program obtain items they need.
We are partnered with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in the Roanoke Valley for furniture donations. Every furniture donation referral from Family Promise equals vouchers for our families to choose furniture they need from Roanoke Valley ReStore.
1) Call Roanoke Valley ReStore to pick up your furniture. Their number is (540) 767-2267. Or you may deliver the furniture yourself Monday-Saturday 9-5. Their address is 3435 Melrose Avenue NW in Roanoke.
2) Be sure to tell the folks at Roanoke Valley ReStore that you were referred by Family Promise when you schedule pick-up and again when it is picked up, or when you deliver the donation.
3) For each furniture donation to ReStore through our referral, Family Promise of Greater Roanoke will receive credit vouchers for our families to use to shop for furniture at ReStore.
