After a successful fundraiser, it was back to making homes for the formerly homeless


2015 Hooker brewery fund raiser


We worked off our hangover from the 4th Annual A Hand Up Fundraiser at Hooker Brewery with deliveries last Friday and Saturday.  Mike Fishman met two vets at our warehouse on Friday the 8th and combined, they picked out a 5 piece sectional sofa, loveseat, 2 dressers, 4 end tables, 2 coffee tables, 2 bookcases, 2 kitchen tables and 4 chairs, 2 TV carts, 2 TV’s, 2 vacuum cleaners, 2 sets of pots & pans, dishware, glassware, silverware, a lamp, sets of towels, sets of linens, 2 blankets, 2 pillows, area rugs, kitchen gadgets, a floor fan, cookware and small kitchen appliances.  The next day Mike was back for more and joined Sam Paul and Zach Kozar from NWC on a small delivery to a client in Bristol.  It was a small apartment with a very narrow staircase.  We managed to bring up everything on her list (armchairs, dresser, coffee table, 2 end tables and a nightstand, 2 lamps, a pillow and a blanket) except for the couch, which she really wanted.  With mixed feelings we loaded the couch back onto the truck and headed back to the warehouse.  Thanks to Mike and Zach for improving the lives of 3 people who needed stuff for their apartment
