Local carpentry firm Singapore Carpentry is giving away furniture to the needy under the Wishlist initiative.

According to a spokesperson for the company, the second-hand furniture and appliances come from their renovation works.

The initiative also aims to preserve the environment by reducing waste.

Some of the latest items to be given away are a Sharp White Two Door Refrigerator, Mitsubishi Air Conditioner, Long Wooden TV Console, Medium Table Lamp, and even the Teka Oven HI635.
