IRR is looking forward to the arrival of our 2nd refugee family on January 30, 2020. We have had a number of kind offers of furniture and household items but are still looking for the following items in good condition (please note that you will need to be able to store these items until the family arrives and we obtain housing for them):

Beds: 1 queen, and either 1 twin or 2 double beds (space constraints).
Bedding: for queen bed and doubles (we have lots of twin bedding)
Dresser 1
Desks (2, reasonably compact) and 2 chairs
Trash cans (3 for bedroom, 1 for kitchen)
Bookshelf (1 or 2)
Kitchen appliances - microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, toaster, blender
Cutlery (for 6 minimum)
Television set, computers(2)
Vacuum
Baby stuff (for 1 year old, 30 lbs) such as car seat, changing table, crib, playpen, stroller, etc

The working group continues to look for rental accommodation, preferably house or semi with at least partially finished basement to provide some separation for the young married couple, any leads appreciated.
