We all know how excited everyone is about IKEA opening in the city (finally!), so before you start chucking your old furniture to the curb to make room for your new purchases, you may want to consider this instead.
A local charity, Alice Housing, wants YOUR old furniture! They have been providing women and children fleeing domestic abuse with a safe haven in the HRM. This means Alice Housing is often helping families start fresh, which, of course, includes furniture.
With IKEA set to open next week, they realized there will probably be a lot of people looking to make some room for new IKEA furniture, leaving their old furniture in need of a new home. They started a Facebook campaign on Monday, and the post had been shared at least 500 times as of Wednesday!
If you’ve got some furniture you’re looking to part with, Alice Housing can put it to good use!
