The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless Needs Your Help...
Dates: November 10 and 11, 2014 | Location: Greater Boston Area
GBAR and Gentle Giant Moving Company have partnered to help fill the furniture bank at the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless (MCH). Please participate in our furniture drive where we will have moving trucks collect items from you, which will then be donated to families making the transition from homelessness into permanent housing. The families will “shop” at the MCH warehouse and select the items that will suite them best in their new home.
To schedule a pickup, please contact Gentle Giant Moving Co. at 1-800-442-6863.The deadline to request a pickup is October 31st. You must provide Gentle Giant with an explanation of items you are donating so that they are able to efficiently plan the truck route. Gentle Giant will gladly accept smaller items such as radios/TV's, lamps, and small appliances if the trucks are already at your home to collect larger furniture, or you can drop items off at the Gentle Giant headquarters (29 Harding St., Somerville) or the MCH warehouse (15 Bubier St., Lynn).
Acceptable items include:
Desk Sofas/Love Seats Dining Tables
Headboards and Footboards Nightstands Coffee/End Tables
Entertainment Centers Recliners/Ottomans Bed Frames
Dressers Buffers or Sideboards Rugs
Book Shelves Hutches or Cabinets
**All items must be in clean and usable condition. No rips or tears. GBAR reserves the right to refuse unsuitable items**
For additional questions or to help determine if an item will be acceptable, please contact the MCH at 781-595-7571
