Drop off, Donate and Volunteer - Stuff Harvest

Stuff Harvest Fest

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2011 from 9:00am - 1:00pm

8 Aurora Street Providence, RI 02908 Map

A special event is coming up that may interest you - a great opportunity to bring in donations, volunteer and show your support of Free Geek Providence.

Stuff Harvest Fest is our name for a recycling/donation day organized in partnership with the Furniture Bank, a non-profit that takes in furniture and other household items to redistribute. It's a day when we can rescue those unwanted items from the dump and turn them into real treasures for needy families.

We will accept all kinds of household furnishings and electronics including beds, bureaus, tables, computers, laptops, PDAs, cell phones, mice, keyboards, and other peripherals,networking equipment, cabling, flat screens, CRT monitors, stereo equipment, telephones, cordless phones, wide screen / tube televisions, batteries (car or gel cells), and other appliances and just about anything else you wish to donate.

Free Geek Providence rescues computers from the landfill by restoring them with open source software and donating them to organizations and individuals who cannot otherwise afford them.

The Furniture Bank operates as a redistribution center by soliciting donations of good quality furniture and household items from individuals and businesses statewide. These items are passed on to qualified individuals and families who have been referred to our program by a member network of more than 85 social service agencies which include homeless and domestic violence centers, CAP agencies, drug/alcohol rehab programs and community centers.

A $10 disposal fee is charged for mini-fridges, household air conditioners and dehumidifiers. WE CANNOT ACCEPT hazardous materials, such as paint, firearms, mattresses, or any type of light bulb or disposable alkaline batteries.

Drop off, donate, volunteer - and make a difference!
