Green Chair Project logo

Green Chair Project

The Green Chair Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides home furnishings donated from our community for families and individuals who have transitioned from experiencing homelessness or disasters and have secured sustainable housing.

The reusable gifts are cleaned and repaired by volunteers and are presented in a way that promotes dignity and respect. For a small fee, families working with case managers from partnering agencies can select furniture, linens, cookware and accessories to outfit their new homes.

The Green Chair experience encourages families to prioritize and make choices and empowers them to create their surroundings and rebuild their lives.

They are always in need of donations and would welcome any art work FALC members would consider donating to their project.

If you decide to donate any art or anything else, let them know that you are a member of the Fine Arts League of Cary.

For details, see the Green Chair Project.
