Westfield Used Linen Drive

We consider Westfield to be an affluent community. But even here, approximately 2.66% live below the poverty line. While that's significantly lower than the national average, some of our neighbors still need our help. This month, donate your old linens to the Westfield Used Linen Drive.

Drop off your used sheets (any size), blankets, towels, shower curtains, and bath mats at any of the participating locations during business hours by March 28th for the Westfield Used Linen Drive benefitting Furniture Assist and local animal shelters.

Click here for an instant "No Strings Attached" valuation of your home.I know it's still winter, but do you plan on doing any spring cleaning soon? Start now and help those less fortunate in the community. Two local Westfield residents (Emily Root and Amy Flax) found out that Furniture Assist, a local non-profit that assists residents in need, often ran out of linens for the families they served. They just couldn't seem to keep enough in stock for the demand. So, they took it upon themselves to talk to several Westfield businesses about joining in a linen drive. Now in its third year, the ladies' used linen drive continues to collect these items for Furniture Assist to dispense where needed.

Between now and March 28th, they ask that anyone with extra items such as sheets, blankets, towels, shower curtains, bath mats, and crib sheets drop them off at any of the five different locations listed below as well a Furniture Assist itself (24 Commerce St, Springfield, NJ). Even if you have old, stained blankets and towels, take those in, too. They'll be given to local no-kill animal shelters to make their stay more comfortable.

Drop-Off Locations

Feel free to drop off your used linen donations to any of the following locations during regular business hours:

  • Caldwell Banker (209 Central Ave)
  • Keller Williams (188 Elm St) - ask for Laura Brockway
  • Ron Banksy & Associates Allstate Insurance Agency (502 E Broad St)
  • Westfield Eco Laundry (341 S Ave E)
  • Westfield Memorial Library (550 E Broad St)

And, of course, Furniture Assist accepts donations at their Springfield location from 12 pm to 2:30 pm any Sunday of the year. They also accept used furniture and other household items during that time. So, if you find yourself with extra pots, pans, dishes, chairs, tables or couches, take them to Furniture Assist for "re-homing".
