Furniture Giveaway 2018

International Student Ministry is getting ready to host its biggest event of the year! It’s the ISM Furniture Giveaway on Saturday, August 18 at Washington University.

Hundreds of international students, having just arrived in this country, will attend the event to receive much-needed furniture and household items. They will experience—perhaps for the first time—the generosity and kindness of American Christians. Come be a part of this exciting event!


You can help us on August 18 in one of the following ways:

  • Unloading trucks of donated furniture in the morning
  • Organizing donated furniture & household items
  • Delivering furniture to students’ homes in the afternoon

Also, please consider bringing a pickup truck if you have one to help in delivering large items to students’ homes; bringing a helper or partner along as well; and helping with furniture pick-up the day before on August 17.


Do you have any furniture or household items you’re no longer using? Needed items include dressers, beds/futons, tables, lamps, book cases, pots & pans, bicycles, desks, sofas, towels, chairs, bed linens, towels, dishes, rice cookers, silverware, mugs, microwaves, cups/glasses, and kitchen gadgets. (Sorry, ISM cannot accept sofa sleepers, file cabinets, TVs, or anything heavier than what two people can carry.) Your items will be picked up on Friday, August 17th.

If you do have furniture or household items to donate, please contact Ann at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wildwood, either via email: or by phone: (636) 273-6239 (feel free to leave a message).
