Helping to furnish a home with new or used furniture and household items is a great way to meet immediate needs of families in the Akron area.

Refugee families often flee their homes at a moment's notice or come from crowded refugee camps. They arrive at Akron Canton airport with few belongings, a difficult past, and high hopes for the future. As part of the resettlement process, World Relief Akron secures and furnishes apartments for newly arriving families. From beds and sofas to linens and dishes, your gently-used furniture and household goods will help to meet immediate needs and provide a warm welcome to a new home. 

  • Our general list of donations tells you the items that we do and don’t accept.

  • Print off the Welcome Kit checklist and mobilize your family or small group to furnish a room or an entire home.
