Our warehouse is almost empty!!! New Year’s Resolution – Give A Hand Up!

It’s a new year and we’ll bet that some of you resolved to clean out your garage or basement.   Our warehouse is almost empty and we still want to serve 4 clients this weekend.  So give us a call at 860-424-2980 to schedule your donations.   We don’t just need donations though.  We need volunteers this weekend too!!!!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – Please email us at volunteer@ahandupinc.org with the date and time you can attend along with your contact number

  • Saturday 1/13 10am-1pmWe are looking for a driver and volunteers to meet a veteran at our warehouse for the items he needs and then to head out on a delivery to a mother and child who are getting back on their feet in Hartford.
  • Sunday 1/14 10am-1pm – We are looking for a driver and volunteers to duplicate Saturday to meet a client at our warehouse for the items she needs and then to head out on a delivery to a couple in Newington.
  • Monday 1/15 – 9am-NoonSam P and members of the St. James Church are gathering at the warehouse to do some organizing and also head out for some donor pickups.
  • Saturday 1/6 – Unfortunately we had to cancel Saturday’s donor day and pickups because we didn’t have enough confirmed volunteers to drive, lift and staff the warehouse.  We think the bitter cold kept them away.
  • Sunday 1/7 – The cold didn’t keep Dave H, Margie and Matt K, Steve M, our president’s son (a Fishman not a Trump) and Evan F away.  They made an efficient yet frigid delivery to a very appreciative client in Hartford.  Her 3rd floor walkup was no match for this team.   We even brought her a couch that was her favorite color.  
  • Monday 1/8 – Todd P and our ASD team met a Veteran at the warehouse to load up his truck before heading out on a delivery.   it was a bit warmer which made it an easy day.
