Williams-Sonoma, partnered with Good360, provides a wide range of donations through its affiliated stores, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and West Elm. These donations can range from appliances and utensils to furniture and lighting.Donations from Williams-Sonoma will vary from store to store, but a group can expect to pickup about once a month on average, with rare occasions of a longer gap between donations.
What our nonprofits are saying about the Williams-Sonoma program...
"The weekly donation pickups at the stores may seem routine but there is a significant story behind the donations. Recently, I had an urgent call from the Union County Interfaith Council for the Homeless. They were providing a small apartment to a young single mother of three children under five years of age. She had to furnish her empty apartment. We put together a toaster, coffeemaker, some dishes and tableware, some chairs, a table for the kitchen, end tables and lamps for the living room.
The young mother was sitting in the waiting room when I delivered the items. When she saw, what was in the boxes, she was moved to tears and was speechless.
In one way or another, this story is repeated every week. It is the kind of moral support needed to help set one on a new path to economic and emotional stability. We are so thankful for Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn for their caring."

"The products we receive from Pottery Barn through Good360 have a significant impact on our ability to serve children and families. They are a lifeline for families moving into their own apartments after spending time in transitional housing, and help make our emergency shelter a temporary 'home' for frightened and abused children and teenagers."
