NEW OBLIGATION FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS AS OF 1 JANUARY 2021: ADAPTATION AND INTEGRATION COURSE Every…More
On Wednesday 13th January 2021, the city of Prague opened its own furniture bank in Prague-Libuš. It will offer furniture and basic home appliances to people in material need. The municipal furniture bank is operated by the municipal contributory organisation Centre for Social Services in Prague.
Unwanted furniture can be donated to the bank by small donors as well as companies. After contacting the service coordinator, people can bring furniture and appliances they no longer want or use to the central warehouse in Obrataňská Street, where the furniture bank is located. Employees of the furniture bank are also able to pick up the donations with their own vehicle. Everything will be distributed to people in need in Prague on the basis of cooperation with social services and social departments of city districts.
The bank will collect basic furniture at first but their plan is to obtain and then offer other household equipment from citizens, companies, and institutions as well.
More information in Czech is available on the website of the Centre for Social Services in Prague.
