Lots of things are happening! Starting December 5 we have a matching grant for “new” pillows!
We have moved our next drop off day to November 22.
We have two veterans coming to the warehouse today!, Veterans day, to pick up the new furnishings to make their new apratments their homes!
In other news, we had a very successful Drop Off Day this past Saturday, thanks to the combined efforts of Mike Fishman, Jim and Thomas Rattigan, Sue and Sean Keating, Dave Houpert, Sue Kayeum and Alan Heins. We had a couple of donors stop by to drop off needed items and took advantage of the three hours we were open to assist three clients who came to the warehouse to pick out and load furniture that they needed for their respective apartments. A special shout out to Sean and Thomas who did a tremendous job re-organizing all of the furniture. Now that we know where to find everything, the selection and loading process will take much less time. Sue, Alan and Sam Paul also made 7 stops around West Hartford, Newington and Rocky Hill to pick up furniture, which was needed in order to fill the lists for scheduled deliveries to two veterans this week.
This Saturday, 11/14, starting at 10:00am, Mike Fishman is leading a round of pick-ups and could use several volunteers to help us collect more inventory for the warehouse. Please let us know if you can help. The second Drop Off Day for November was moved from 11/15 to 11/22 (from 10:00am – 1:00pm), so no activity planned for this Sunday. We are in critical need of new pillows, kitchen tables, silverware, and small kitchen appliances such as toasters, coffee makers, microwaves, etc. If you have any of these items to donate to us, please contact us. Also, if you have a group of volunteers that are interested in helping us with client deliveries, either during the week or on weekends, we can match you up with one of our drivers. Please contact us at (860) 424-2980 or via the website and we will put you on the schedule.
