In the face of the ongoing Covid 19 situation, Houston Furniture Bank continues our service to the community. There continues to be a great need for the services we provide. Houston Furniture Bank is taking the following precautions to keep the families we serve and our staff safe:

  • Sanitizing all surfaces regularly and wearing gloves when handling furniture.
  • Encouraging staff, clients and caseworkers to stay home when symptomatic.
  • For our Furniture Selection appointments, we are working with our Distribution Partners to limit non-essential visitors to HFB.
  • Educating our staff about CDC and WHO preventative guidelines.
  • Allowing remote work for staff for whom this is an option.
  • Postponing upcoming events.
    • Our HFB Art Gallery Reception, originally scheduled for March 21 has been postponed until further notice.
    • The No Kids on the Floor Luncheon, originally scheduled for June 2, has been pushed back to September 1st to allow for outreach.
    • Product Runway 2020 has been postponed.

Here are some guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID 19

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • If you have fever, cough or difficulty breathing, see medical care early.
  • Stay informed and follow the advice given by your healthcare provider.

We will be monitoring the following websites and encourage all to do the same.

Thank you and stay healthy!
