Furniture warehouse closed due to COVID 19

Furniture warehouse closed due to COVID 19

Posted Mar 24th, 2020

Because furniture stores are one of the businesses deemed non-essential by the Ontario government, our Open Arms Mission Warehouse is closed for all furniture sales until further notice, effective immediately.

Normally, our furniture warehouse is a "furniture bank" for people in need (we've provided furniture to formerly homeless people who have found permanent housing, women leaving abusive relationships and having to start over with nothing, new immigrants who arrive with no beds for their children) and it is a source of income as we sell excess furniture and use the money to fund our programs and services.

Now that we have lost that source of income (thousands of dollars a month) until we are able to reopen the furniture warehouse, the financial need is even greater. If you are able to donate, please do!
