Donation options for discarded furniture

This is the time of year we see discarded furniture and other household goods set out for city trash pick up. Many of the items left out to be trashed are usable. If you see items that could be reused, here are some donation options from Anne McLaughlin with Volunteers for Change. Your donations will keep usable items out of the landfill and help these nonprofit agencies:

Furniture & Appliances
St. Vincent de Paul for free pick up.
(812) 961-1510 or
Schedule at least 48 hours ahead of time.

Please include the type of usable furniture or working appliances you wish to donate, your address, and a phone number. St. Vincent de Paul is all volunteer organization that distributes usable furniture and working appliances free of charge to those in need (people moving from homelessness, etc).
