We are happy to share the news of our new pick up and delivery truck! With grants, we could replace our old vehicle with a newer, safer, and less costly truck.
Our goal is to furnish at least 2,000 homes in a year with more than 50,000 donated household items and furniture. Our new truck plays a major role in supplying chains as it is utilized to get or pick up donations from our partners.
Moreover, we use the truck to accept bulk donations from dorms and hotels. During spring, our volunteers spend about ten days collecting household items from dorms. The truck then transports all the needed items to Household Goods & Furniture. This helps people start a home while saving some items that were supposed to be in landfills.
Household Goods & Furniture is operated mostly by volunteers, and every year more than 700 of them offer 35,000 hours of their time. They very much appreciate their new truck, and on behalf of our clients, we thank those who gave us the grant!
