Homeward Bound opens new donations center

Homeward Bound of WNC, a nonprofit based in Buncombe and Henderson counties is pleased to announce that effective June 1st, we will accept your donations of gently used furniture and housewares at our new donation center located at 549 Elk Park Drive, Unit 708, Asheville, NC 28804.

The Center will begin with accepting donations between 1 - 4 PM on Wednesdays but we hope to expand days and hours with assistance from our volunteer pool.

Your clean and gently used household items can help others experience the comforts of home after having lived in a car, camp or a shelter. The donations we received go directly to our clients, furnishing their new homes or are used at our Day Center for people still living without housing.

In 2015, we moved 352 people out of homelessness in Buncombe and Henderson Counties and furnished their apartments, mobile homes and houses with items provided by our community.

For more information about donating items or scheduling a pick-up of furniture, please contact Ashley Campbell at 258.1695 ext. 105 or at 777.1886 or visit our website at www.homewardboundwnc.org.
