How To Get Involved!
There are several ways to volunteer your time with New Life Furniture Bank. Fill out our form below to get started!
Organize Household Goods
Volunteer in our warehouse by sorting and packing housewares items like dishes, cups, cookware and linens, so they are ready to get loaded onto our trucks and delivered to people in our community.

Assemble Furniture in our Woodshop
We have a woodshop in our warehouse for building essential pieces of furniture like kitchen tables, end tables, bookshelves and desks. Our expert carpenters from the Cincinnati Woodworking Club lead table building sessions for volunteer groups.
Join us! Gather your corporate work group, friends or family to help us assemble tables. No experience required. Our woodworking leaders will work alongside you or your group.
We are now partnering with local organization, Scrap 2 Home, whose mission is to turn scrap lumber into furniture for people in need.
Paint Furniture in our Woodshop
Do you love to paint furniture! Once our tables are assembled, we need adults to volunteer a couple of hours to apply the final touch: a fresh coat of paint to give the tables a more finished appearance.

We need volunteers to help us sort and prepare donated items for sale. Additonal duties may include moving inventory, setting up displays, assembling furniture, and pricing merchandise. Volunteers will work under the guidance of our store manager for this program.
