Furnishing Hope

The Open Door Exchange (ODE) located at 200 Wilson Street, Building G, in Port Jefferson Station is a mission of Setauket Presbyterian Church and seeks to serve the community by providing quality furniture for anyone who needs. Since its beginning, ODE has distributed over 6,000 furniture pieces. From one open door through another ODE has helped more than 800 families. 

Throughout the year furniture donations are accepted from individuals and organizations through scheduled pick-ups and drop-offs. The pieces received go through an intake process where they are cleaned, inspected and repaired if necessary. Families and individuals are then welcome to the ODE warehouse where they can view and choose the pieces that work for them.

ODE is run by an efficient and effective staff as well has many hard-working volunteers. The mission of ODE is to bring joy, security and comfort to people in the community by lifting the financial burden of home furnishing. Sometimes that cost is over looked and sometimes people are in need to due to emergency situations. ODE prides itself in keeping quality furniture pieces well stocked and available for visitors to view and tag for their homes. 

From March 25 at 9 a.m. through March 31 at 6 p.m. the Open Door Exchange will hold its annual fundraiser, Furnishing Hope, through a live online auction. An in person celebration will be held at Setauket Presbyterian Church, 5 Caroline Ave., Setauket on April 1 at 7 p.m. Tickets to the in-person event are $10 per person and can be purchased online. The live auction and tickets can be found at: https://www.opendoorexchange.org/.
