Host a Household Goods / Furniture Drive

Throughout the year, DCH works with congregations, community groups and businesses in holding local household goods and furniture drives. We are happy to bring our truck out to your community for a local drive. Please contact us at 508-752-5519 ext 105 to coordinate a drive in your town, local congregation or place of business.

Recycle Your Reusables

The DCH will be participating in the 8th Annual Recycle Your Reusables event which takes place on Saturday, October 15, 9am-2pm at the Ayer-Shirley Middle School.

Over 30 vendors will be in attendance, giving you the opportunity to recycle an enormous variety of items. Several charitable and non-profit organizations will also be on hand to receive household goods, baby gear, books, art supplies, and so much more. RYR is free (except for some electronics), with a voluntary donation to Loaves and Fishes and is open to residents of any town. Clean out your attics and basements and join us on October 15!
