Yes we do but we strongly encourage you to make transportation arrangements if at all possible. FiFM is a 100% volunteer-based organization. Pick-up and delivery times can vary based on the needs of our clients, volunteer availability, and inventory/storage space in our showroom. The wait time for pick-up/delivery is usually 3-6 weeks.
No we do not. Donors: Please disassemble items as necessary and include parts (screws/washers etc.) in clearly labeled baggie. Instructions for assembly are greatly appreciated. Clients: If you receive disassembled furniture and believe there may be missing pieces, please call Evelyn McSorley at 443-519-2464 to resolve.
When I come to showroom, can I have additional furniture items outside of original request if I see something I like?
No. We do our very best to ensure that we have the requested items available for everyone that we schedule. The inventory you see during your visit may already be reserved for another client scheduled to come in. If you see other items you are in need of during your visit, please call 443-519-2464 to schedule a new appointment.
