The Appalachia Committee Inc. is an IRS recognized 501-(C)3 nonprofit organization. The Committee was formed in 1968 as a direct result of the family mission experience of two Ames, Iowa families working with a small Catholic parish in Williamsburg Kentucky.

What do we do?

The Committee accepts donations of quality used household furniture, beds, mattresses, kitchen appliances, clothing, and toys and sends tractor trailer loads to Williamsburg, Kentucky. It also helps to sponsor youth and high school trips to the region and fosters a relationship between communities in Iowa and Kentucky.

2013 Requests for household items:

We are accepting new and quality used household furniture, kitchen appliances and we are also collecting toys for our Christmas truck. Friendship Center has informed us that they have a huge demand for furniture and kitchen appliances and they generally do not receive many of these donated items. So we are asking you to remember our warehouse and these needs when you are remodeling or moving or replacing your kitchen appliances, washer, dryer, living room furniture, beds and dressers. The warehouse is open each Saturday 2019 Pullman ST., 9:30-noon. Donated items are sent sent to Williamsburg Kentucky by tractor trailer. We also need your help to pay for these truckloads. Your donations are tax deductible!
