FURNITURE DONATIONS WANTED
Release Date: March 18, 2009
The town is trying to save money by asking residents/businesses for furniture donations. A number of departments in the town need furniture. If your business or household is looking to replace furniture - this is what we need:
**Library--conference table and chairs for local history room ; office furniture and outdoor furniture;
**Public works--10 to 12 conference room chairs
**Conference rooms-- 12 conference room chairs
** Planning--office chairs
**Greenburgh Nature Center desks (one big wooden desk)
If you have other furniture in good condition, please advise.
The town will provide donors with a letter indicating the donee's name, the date and location of the donation and a detailed description of the item, but not the value of the donated items. If the donor is taking a donation of $5000 or more it is up to the donor to get an appraisal for tax purposes.
A few years ago a similar e mail I sent out resulted in the library receiving beautiful outdoor furniture which was enjoyed by library patrons during the construction of the new library. The outdoor furniture was placed at Town Hall, overlooking the pond.
Thanks for your help!
