The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless needs your help!
Dates: November 12 and 13, 2019 | 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 suit 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 November 1st. You must provide Gentle Giant with an explanation of items you are donating so that they are able to efficiently plan the truck route. The people who receive the donated furniture move the furniture themselves into their new home. They often move into second-floor walk-up apartments. Our goal is to give them furniture that can fit up the stairs and into their new home, so we will not be able to accept oversized furniture.
Gentle Giant will gladly accept smaller items such as radios/TV’s, lamps, and small appliances if the trucks are at your home to pick up larger furniture, or you can drop items of at Gentle Giant (29 Harding St. Somerville) or the MCH warehouse (73 Buffum St, Lynn).
Acceptable items include:
Desks | Sofas/Love Seats | Dining Tables | Head and Footboards | Nightstands | Recliners/ Ottomans | Bed Frames / Cribs | Dressers | Buffets or Sideboards | Book Shelves | Rugs | Coffee/ End Tables
**All items must be in clean and usable condition. Please no over-sized items. 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.
