Conference tables have always been at the heart of big decisions. Whether it’s for a business transaction or a political event, most planning happens in a roundtable setting. From today’s youth to charity workers, many people could use places to plan and brainstorm. Earlier on the Zealous Good blog, we discussed where to donate office furniture, but if you specifically have a used conference table to donate, today we tell you where to send it.
If you’re in Chicago, it’s as easy as using Zealous Good to find out exactly which charities need your used conference table. If you’re not in Chicago, here are some places that could use it.
Tomorrow’s great leaders are born in today’s schools. Donate your board room table to a school so our youth can gather and form the innovative ideas of the future. High school and college students, on the debate and football teams alike, need places to come together and collaborate. As a result, schools and colleges in your community are sure to put your old meeting place to good use.
For information on schools near you, you can look up your local school district online.
The library – a place to learn about the past, a place to delve into a world of fantasy, a place to study about past theories or formulate your own – is a great place to donate office furniture, such as a business table. Local bookworms need good places to read or study, so be sure to visit your local library’s website to see if they need your old boardroom table.
Although you may not think it, homeless shelters are in dire need of office furniture donations, and especially long, sturdy tables. At these amazing centers, most surfaces tend to be used for eating, so these organizations and their clients can always use places to meet after a long, hard day so that they can play chess, other board games, and bingo. You can find a homeless shelter near you that needs your used conference table on the Homeless Shelter Directory.
In short, when you give away a used conference table, there are many different ways it can be repurposed. Countless people and organizations are in need of the sort of meeting area or workspace business tables provide. Donate via Zealous Good and choose which Chicago charity it goes to, or follow one of our tips. Either way, give today!
