When a refugee family arrives, LFS secures an apartment and furnishes the apartment with all the basic necessities. We rely on donations of gently used items from the community to be able to give refugees a warm welcome! We do pickups for furniture, but please understand that we are a small operation and so we are generally not able to pick up with short notice and we do not do weekend pickups, so please call in advance. Thank you for your generosity!
