A RE/MAX franchise owner, Mamta Bahl began volunteering at Furniture Bank six months ago.
In the summer of 2018, Mamta and her team were scheduled to volunteer for a morning on the floor helping clients select their furniture. Due to a family emergency, Mamta was not able to join. Her team spoke so fondly of their experience, that she was inspired to come in for a tour to learn more about the organization and the impact our volunteers make every day. Lucky for us, she has been volunteering every Tuesday since.
“Volunteering at the Furniture Bank is fun and exciting. It is a great way to stay connected and give back to the community. I get to meet a diverse group of clients that often reminds me of how much similarity there is despite our differences. It is extremely satisfying to watch them set up a complete home with the help of donated furniture and accessories. I am in awe at how smoothly the entire operation runs – from picking up donations to sorting to setting up the floor to coordinating appointments to fundraising, and so much more. Each and every member and volunteer plays a critical role. Alongside clients, I have made some of the met some awesome people and made great friendships. Together we share some fun, Interesting and crazy stories. I look forward to my Tuesday mornings.”
We look forward to seeing you as well, Mamta! Thank you for your continued support of our mission to end furniture poverty.
