What is a “Fill the Truck” Event?


Do you have gently used furniture or household items that need a new home?

Join our “Fill the Truck” event to give new life to your donated items. New Life

Furniture Bank is Greater Cincinnati’s only furniture bank, delivering furniture,

beds and household items to families overcoming homelessness, domestic abuse,

extreme poverty, and other devastating circumstances. The need in our community is greater than ever right now, and your donations can make a big difference.


Donate and Help a Neighbor In Need


It takes a team to furnish over 1500 homes in a year. New Life Furniture Bank relies on the help of local volunteers to get furniture to those who need it. This year, their furniture delivery goal is to fully furnish over 1,500 households, so your time and skills are much needed and appreciated! If you want to contribute to helping our neighbors in need, then please consider volunteering with New Life Furniture Bank or donating any way you are able to.


Furniture Donation Items That You Can & Can't Donate


*XLarge furniture items can be scheduled for pick up if you are unable to transport. Please call (513) 313-0530 to schedule.


Your furniture donations make a BIG impact in our community!


Dana Saxton with New Life Furniture Bank Cincinnati, Oh

When people are coming out of devastating circumstances like homelessness, domestic violence or abuse, extreme poverty, aging out of foster care, death or divorce in a family unit, or immigration/refugee situations, people often move into unfurnished homes and are not able to afford furniture.


A family moving into a vacant home is 3 times more likely to return to homelessness.


Living in an unfurnished home often results in sleeping and eating on the floor, and often results in a lack of hope and dignity, poor quality of life, and health problems.


For more information on how you can make a difference by doing good for your community, please check out this video message from the Director of New Life Furniture Bank, Dana Saxton.
