Another busy weekend is upon us.  We have a delivery on Saturday.  Then on Sunday we have our donor drop off day, 3 pickups from donors and a warehouse clean out.   We are pretty selective on the donations we take but sometimes we get things our clients aren’t interested in.  Bring you hammers and saws to break down the items and help fill the dumpster.
