The Southborough Fire Department has partnered with Marlborough-based Furnishing Options to collect small household items for  those who were left temporarily homeless by last month’s six-alarm fire at the Lake Williams condo complex in Marlborough. The last day to donate items is Thursday, May 10. Here are the details.

Drop off linens and small household items – sheets, quilts, towels, blankets, cookware, and kitchen items – at the fire station. Donations may be new or used. If used, please make sure they are clean and in good condition without rips or stains.

Furnishing Options also accepts larger furniture items like dressers, bookshelves, and dining room tables, but please don’t bring those to the fire station. To make arrangements for furniture donations, contact Furniture Options directly at 774-348-4922, or email Southborough coordinator Patricia Burns Fiore at Note that because of health requirements, Furnishing Options does not accept mattresses or sleep sofas.

We will be at the Fire Station at 9 am tomorrow (Saturday) to pick everything up and transport it to Furnishing Options. Please bring any last minute donations over at that time. You still have time to clean out those closets and donate linens, towels, blankets, pots/pans and kitchenware!! I will have tax donations receipts available.
We will also be able to accept and transport small furniture items (dressers, kitchen tables, dining chairs, etc). Please do not bring these to the fire station before 9 am Saturday.
Many thanks to all!!
