Canada's First Distanced Furniture Removal Service
Since March 17th our facility closed and our team has been working hard remotely in order to do our part to #flattenthecurve while still supporting the City of Toronto’s Housing Programs as on essential service. We have hundreds of families unable to self isolate successfully in empty housing and they need our support now more than ever.
Today I am thrilled to announce Canada’s first DISTANCED Removal Service is live operating! Where our professional staff ensure your donated items can be collected and delivered to the thousands of families needing a home during this crisis safely and carefully all the way through the Furniture Bank process.
Below is a timeline of a typical distanced pickup, (from your home to the new home) and our team at Furniture Bank look forward to talking to you about your specific donation items and help kickstart your isolated spring cleaning project. #togetherwecan
