Donate Furniture and More

Project Connect

Project-ConnectSafeNet’s Project Connect picks up furniture donations to pass on to families when they begin a new life free from abuse. Many survivors have fled from an abusive home with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Your used items can help.

Project Connect trucks travel county-wide to pick up furniture in good condition.

Connect workers move these donations for families at no charge who are setting up a new permanent home free from violence.

Project Connect clients particularly need chests of drawers.

Our clients can use all types of furniture, household items, dressers, single beds, mattresses, tables and chairs, kitchen cookware and utensils.

Single sheets, towels, bookcases and framed art will help make a new place seem like home.

Our families may move to small apartments so some large pieces of furniture may not be appropriate.

To schedule a donation call SafeNet at (814) 455-1774.

Please ask for Project Connect.

Cell phones

A cell phone can be of vital importance to a survivor transitioning from a domestic violence situation. We collect cell phones and Verizon reconditions the phones and gives a minute’s allowance for our clients. Please consider donating your used cell phones. Broken phones can also be turned in for recycling/reconditioning.
