Who We Are
A leading registered charity, Furniture Bank changes lives by providing furniture and housewares to people experiencing poverty or displacement. We think we’re a pretty fun group of changemakers driven to make this world a better place. Fast paced and growing, we live by our core values: empathy, resilience, collaboration, change agents, and integrity.
Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for a positive, ambitious professional who can stand behind Furniture Bank’s mission to changes lives by providing gently-used furniture and housewares to people emerging from homelessness and displacement. The ideal candidate will understand our mission, and show dedication and leadership. Furniture Bank provides gently used furniture free of charge to families in need, referred by the city’s many social agency partners. Furniture Bank supports this community effort with a Social Enterprise that provides a furniture removal service that provides donors with an easy and effective way to recycle furniture back into the community. The candidate will enhance these efforts by assisting in all accounts receivable duties for Furniture Bank; including invoicing, adjustments to the general ledger, deposits, follow up and collection of accounts in a timely manner.
