How Can I Keep My Sofa Out of a Landfill?

Q: I'm running into a lot of problems trying to hand off my used loveseat. I've emailed and spoken to friends and family, including my church, posted on Craigslist and Freecycle and on my building's bulletin board...nothing. And when I called Salvation Army and Goodwill, they refuse to send a truck unless I have at least two furniture items or one furniture item and five bags of clothes/household goods…

...The loveseat in question is in great shape. It's just used and I hate to think it'll wind up in the landfill because I didn't find a good home for it. Any suggestions of other places I could try?
