Steelcase Helps Companies Donate Old Furniture

furnitureSteelcase announced a new Environmental  Partnership Program with Institution Recycling Network (IRN). The partnership between Steelcase – a leading maker of office furniture – and IRN matches unneeded office furnishngs with non-profit groups around the world.

The furniture can be recycled, sold, or donated, to another organization, which minimizes the amount sent to landfill. When Notre Dame moved its Law School in January, the university donated 1600 pieces of furniture to Food for the Poor, a  charitable organization in Jamaica and Haiti. While it cost $14,000 to have IRN recycle it, it would have cost $20,000 to send it to landfill.

Typical recipients include U.S. cities damaged by natural disasters and developing communities who use the furniture to build schools, clinics and businesses.

  1. I am glad to hear of their donations. Steelcase has great products that are high priced. I imagine that they have a great deal of extra panels and other modular products that could help out the community.

  2. I am a volunteer with the Prince George’s County’s, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program. The program goal is to provide independently derived, factual information to the Juvenile Court regarding abused, neglected and dependent children and youth. The volunteers advocate for child who have been declared Children in Need of Assistance (CINA). We monitor cases involving children in need of assistance until the children have been permanently placed and/or the Court, the CASA volunteer and the CASA staff mutually agree that CASA’s involvement is not longer necessary. CASA program depends on donations, grants, and some Government funding to operate. The staff is not very large and they just moved to a new space but was unable to purchase much needed furniture. They have a lot of filing needs, as well. I am reaching out to Steelcase to see if your program includes donating furniture to organizations like the CASA. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. If you would like to contact me by phone please call on 301-234-0002. Thank you.
