Greetings and welcome to the Jubilee Furniture blog where each Friday I show you some of the new-to-us furniture which we’ve received for donation that week.
30,000 square feet of showroom/warehouse is a lot of space to fill and – though, obviously, we don’t sell everything in the store every week – our inventory is different enough when we open each Friday (from 1 to 8) and Saturday (from 9 to 4) to warrant a look-see – if you’re so inclined and schedule allows - and the purpose of the blog is to help you make that decision.
A less mentioned – but equally important – purpose of the blog is to get word out about contacting us if you – or someone you know – has quality, used furniture to donate. There’s an easy donation submission form you can complete online here or you can phone me or Warehouse Manger, Dan Snyder at (630) 337-1467. A list of what we, most politely, do not accept for donation is shown here. Dan and Jubilee Furniture Truck Assistant, Chris Jackson, are out making donation pickups every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We do ask that all items for donation be in a position in your home or office where the guys can move them out without encountering stairs and everything donated to Jubilee Furniture is tax-deducible and we leave each donor with an IRS approved donation receipt.
And finally, my hope with the blog is to connect you with the larger work of Outreach Community Ministries. Outreach – in a nutshell – is a faith-based, social service agency working in Carol Stream, Wheaton and Warrenville. Our mission statement succinctly sums up what we do – restore hope and provide opportunities – to those most in need in DuPage County. The proceeds of what we sell at Jubilee Furniture (minus our expenses) are helping Outreach do just that. In addition to shopping at Jubilee, you can financially support Outreach directly here.
