Immediate Need for District Family

  • Mattresses, box springs, metal bed frames - all sizes. Must be free of any rips, stains, tears, odors, or excessive pet hair. All mattresses are examined before accepted

Ongoing Need

We are collecting the clear zippered bags that comforters/blankets/curtains come in to use in the warehouse.  If you have any, they can be dropped off at OW warehouse.

Tax donation receipts available upon request

 

Help Needed

Project Furniture is in need of volunteers to help with the pick-up and delivery of furniture and beds, as well as ongoing organization of the furniture area of the Operation Wildcat warehouse.  You do not have to have a truck or trailer to help out – we are most in need of the ‘muscle’ to move the items in and out of the warehouse. Days, evenings or weekends – any time would be helpful. If you would like to learn more about Operation Wildcat’s Project Furniture please contact: Bill Richie at wood294@verizon.net or Kaleb DIssinger at t34foru@yahoo.com.

 

Service Hours Opportunities:

Project Furniture and Housewares is always in need of help with sorting and organizing items in the storage facility.  Please contact  the Project Coordinator if you, or your group, would like to volunteer.

Donation of Items

  • For all furniture donations please contact Maureen with pictures of the furniture items you would like to donate (mmross4@comcast.net, 717-773-1988).  No furniture will be accepted without pictures sent ahead of time to ensure we have room in the warehouse, and they are items our families can use. 

  • We no longer accept any electrical items that need to be installed (unless NEW in box) - no ceiling/wall lighting, ceiling fans, etc. as we have no way to test them. 

  • We no longer accept glass top furniture items (table tops, coffee table/end tables with glass tops).  Our warehouse does not have the room to properly store these items. 

  • We only accept new or gently used furniture

  • We cannot accept any items that are broken, stained or torn.

  • If you are donating sheets, comforters and blankets, please label the bag, with a marker, with the size being donated, i.e. Twin, Full, etc

At the present time(due to all the donations received and lack of space) we are NOT taking:

  • Clothing

  • artificial Christmas trees (contact Project Tannenbaum chair Patti Herring familyzeke@verizon.net to make arrangements)

  • canister vacuums/ floor steamers/cleaners

  • dehumidifiers

  • electrical fixtures that need to be installed (i.e. ceiling/wall lighting, ceiling fans)

  • exercise equipment

  • Glassware - cups/mugs- vases

  • Grills

  • Used Pillows (bed or decorative)

  • Skis/ski equipment

  • Stuffed animals

If you have Furniture to donate please text or email pictures AHEAD OF TIME to mmross4@comcast.net, 717-773-1988, to ensure we have room at the warehouse and they are items needed/requested by our families.
