Church needs furniture donations

DeKALB – First Congregational United Church of Christ, 615 N. First St. in DeKalb, is looking for gently-used furniture for college students and other community members. The church is seeking chairs, desks, beds, sofas, kitchen items and lamps. No clothing or books will be accepted.

Call the church office at 815-758-0691 to donate and arrange pick-up of furniture. Offers to  bring furniture to the church are greatly appreciated.

The furniture sale will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24. Donors are asked to call by July 15 to ensure that enough furniture is donated to warrant the sale.

The sale not only helps incoming university students and members of the community, it also helps local nonprofits, which benefit from all proceeds from the sale.
