The 15th Annual Furniture Give-Away for International Students took place August 18-24, 2019 at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church (SOCC). Thanks to over 400 Volunteers from multiple churches and organizations that helped serve 387 new IU International students from 32 countries. Weather was perfect and no one was injured. It was also great to receive 35 desks & chairs from St. Vincent de Paul before the event and be able to deliver several truckloads of furniture to them after the event in kind knowing they would be given to those in need.

Join us starting April 2020 as we begin collecting furniture and household goods for the 16th Annual Furniture Give-Away week (Sunday 16 August - Saturday 22 August 2020). Event week is the week before IU starts in August 2020. Mark your calendar!
