Refugee Stuff: Running a Refugee Center Furniture Program: College furniture drive thought.

The other day I wandered through the campus of the local university. The semester recently ended and there was furniture all in dumpsters.

At the end of a school year it is not uncommon for students to have excess furniture that they just don't know what to do with. Some of this is junk, but other pieces are quite good. Often the furniture is being discarded because someone who lives a long way away is unable to ship it where they will go or else because they just don't know what else to do with it besides dump it. (In fact that's how I got my television and at least one book shelf.)

It's a shame that more refugee centers don't follow up on this opportunity.
