An integral initiative in the Furniture Bank program is the Bike Ministry which provides bicycles as basic transportation to individuals that utilize bicycles as their primary mode of transportation. Bike Ministry is supported by local bike shops that donate used bicycles to be refurbished and given away.

This program aims to provide furniture, household items, and appliances at no charge to those transitioning into permanent and sustainable housing from homelessness (according to HUD standards), temporary housing, shelters, and starting over due to a house fire or other disaster. A small program fee applies to those not fitting these criteria. You may donate your gently used furniture by calling 706-755-7244 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We must have at least 24-hour notice for pick up in most cases. Pick-ups are free - we welcome financial donations.
