The MFIS Furniture program is a volunteer-run garage. We collect, store, and distribute gently used furniture to visiting international students when they arrive in Madison. Our program provides them with essentials such as a bed, desk, chair and other items at a nominal cost. Students tell us they are so grateful for this invaluable service.
The LAST Open House at our furniture storage location for fall semester 2023 took place from 9am to 12pm on Friday, September 8th. Our inventory is greatly depleted and must be replenished. Please check back here for updates in the future
