We collect, store, and distribute gently used furniture to visiting international students and scholars when they arrive in Madison. Many arrive to unfurnished apartments. Our program provides them with essentials such as a bed, desk and chair, lighting and other items they might need at a nominal cost. Furniture is first come, first served. It CANNOT be reserved. Students tell us this service is invaluable to them and are grateful for our support.
- Where? Our location is a storage garage behind the Dale Heights Presbyterian Church at 5501 University Avenue in Madison. See a map for the location of the Furniture Storage Place. See Madison Metro Bus Route.
- Delivery? The student renter is responsible for transporting the furniture, but MFIS will try to arrange delivery to Madison addresses for $10 – $15 per trip. Delivery service cannot be guaranteed.
- What if I cannot find what I need? If MFIS does not have what you are looking for try the thrift/second-hand stores in the Madison area.
