    Furniture Donations – The Barn

    The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie is not able to accept furniture donations at this time. While we appreciate the thoughtful generosity of all of our donors and friends, our storage space is very limited. In response, we have partnered with The Barn Thrift Shops, located in Poughkeepsie and Pleasant Valley who will graciously accept these donations. The Barn Thrift Shops are a Dutchess County based family of nonprofit thrift shops, where the profits from your donations and purchases are distributed back into the local and international community, and to individuals in need, like the children and families served by the Children’s Home. Both the Children’s Home itself and our client families will be able to shop at The Barn Thrift Shops for little or no money when a need arises.

    For more information about The Barn Thrift Shops please visit their website at or call 845-635-9630. Thank you very much for your generosity and understanding.

    (Please note, donations of upholstered furniture, including mattresses, are not accepted.)
