It’s August already! you know you want to give A Hand Up!

Last weekend, the team of Alan Heins and Todd and Hayden Polley made a delivery to Vanessa, a disabled vet.  They delivered a sofa, armchair, coffee table, end table, TV stand, bookcase and lamps for her living room and a kitchen table and chairs, pots and pans, glassware and other items for her kitchen.  Thanks to Alan, Todd & Hayden for helping out Vanessa.

This Saturday, 8/6, starting at 10:00am we have scheduled a delivery to a family of four that arrived from Puerto Rico two months ago with nothing.  Their case manager confirmed that their apartment is still empty so the truck will be pretty full.  We need a driver and 3-4 volunteers to help with this delivery.  We could also use a Spanish speaker to help translate for the delivery team.  Please let us know if you can spare a couple hours this Saturday morning to help a family in need.

Looking ahead to next weekend, we have several pick-ups scheduled for Saturday, 8/13, starting at 10:00am from the warehouse.  We will need a driver and 2-3 volunteers to make several stops in West Hartford to pick up furniture.  Our one and only Drop Off Day for the month of August will be Sunday, 8/14, from 10:00am – 1:00pm.  We need a few volunteers to staff the warehouse.  Please let us know if you can assist.”
