Regarding Furniture Donations:
As our residents transition to their new homes away from the Farm, furniture is a big need. Therefore, we’ve partnered with the FPC Furniture Ministry in Burlington, NC to support Benevolence Farm with the logistics of moving furniture. If you have gently used furniture you’d like to donate, please contact the Furniture Ministry here. We can only coordinate furniture pick-up in Alamance County at this time. All are welcome to drop off furniture at the Burlington location.
