Furniture Drive takes place each June, after Commencement.
The GSG Furniture Drive provides an opportunity for members of the Princeton community to help local charities by purchasing gently-used furniture and other household items donated by undergraduates. This annual event is organized by the GSG but relies on volunteers. Volunteers receive $10 in merchandise credit per hour. Sign up to volunteer here .
All proceeds of this event are given to charity. In the past, the drive has raised money for local outreach programs, including Home Front, Tender Hearts, Upper East Trenton Outreach, and Rescue Mission of Trenton. In 2013, we raised over $4000 for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Mercer County and the Rescue Mission of Trenton. Thank you to our volunteers, students who donated items, and those who purchased items at the drive! In 2012 we raised $3460, and our totals for 2009-2006 were $3,103.80, $1,689, $3,588, and $2,010.
NOTE: Unfortunately, the GSG cannot assist in the transportation of purchased items at the Drive.
