In our Customers’ Words

We’d like to start off by saying how very grateful we are for our outstanding customers! At the end of the day, our customers are the ones who make it happen. They see a need in the community and they’re willing to help fill that need. They recognize that they have a solution for someone’s problem and they are hands-on and ready to support. Luckily for us, some have agreed to share their stories. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! 


‘I hate to see waste and knowing that there’re people that don’t have anything – and we have surplus sometimes – and we don’t think: well, someone else might need this and appreciate this!’. 


‘[…] I thought that it was a way to pass on some of my mom’s furniture – gently used furniture – to others who would be in need. And I know my mom would liked that!’


‘This is something physical, a concrete piece which I have used, and now I’m giving it to someone else – that connection I’m so grateful for!’
