Spring forward, March madness and Jump Up for A Hand Up

Last weekend was all about deliveries.  This weekend is all about donations.  We have scheduled a large pick-up in Farmington this Saturday, 3/19, and we need a driver and 3-4 volunteers to make this happen.  Please meet at our warehouse located at 93 Talcott Rd., West Hartford at 10:00am on Saturday.  We promise to be done before the tip off of the Round of 32 games.

On Sunday, 3/20, we have our second Drop Off Day in March from 10:00am – 1:00pm.  We need volunteers to staff the warehouse and assist donors who drop items off.  Chances are we will have a client or two stopping by to pick up furniture and other household items during the Drop Off Day as well.  We will also take the truck out to two stops (West Hartford and Bloomfield) to pick up needed items and we need a driver and a few volunteers to help with these two collection stops.

This past weekend we were able to assist three clients thanks to volunteers Sue Kayeum, Alan Heins, Jim Ligas, Mike Fishman and the good folks from Calvary Fellowship.  They took advantage of the great weather and delivered furniture and household goods to three individuals, David, Juan and Paul (a vet), all of whom had been waiting over a month for us to help them out.  We hope to see the Calvary Fellowship team again in the near future.
