Free furniture to be given out at Newburg Community Center

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Flooding and fire victims are getting a helping hand.

More than a 150 rooms worth of used furniture from the Galt House and the Crowne Plaza Hotel is being given away Friday.

The items are being given away on a first-come, first-served basis. Recipients must bring a truck and move the items themselves.

"We started out with flood and fire victims, but when you look at it, there are a lot of people that really need furniture," said Louisville Metro Council member Barbara Shanklin. "So we just opened it up to anyone that wanted it. You know your needs better than I do."

The giveaway runs until 5 p.m. today at the Newburg Community Center parking lot.
