Build Furniture

volunteer event 1Are you looking to do team building with your staff at work? Do you like to build furniture? Have any resources for wood, table legs or table tops? Know how to turn pallets into kitchen tables?

The CARITAS Furniture Bank does not receive sufficient donations of dressers or kitchen tables and beds, so we are looking for your help in finding solutions to help us fill this gap.

Dresser, Bed, and Table Builds

Beds, dressers and tables are some of the hardest items for us to get, yet are among the most needed items. Help plan a “build” in your community. Plans and wood kits provide opportunities to build at the Furniture Bank or at your site.

About the Builds

Building a bed, table or dresser is a great group project! Dining table kits are available for purchase at CARITAS for $55 per kit. Instructions and a tools list accompany each kit. Volunteer groups can build them on-site at CARITAS during a scheduled visit or at their own site. Beds and dressers may be purchased online and built at CARITAS or a volunteer group’s site. Typically two to three volunteers take about two hours to build a table.
