Olympia Moving and Storage was proud to once again take part in the Furnish the Future drive to benefit the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. Over three days in November, Olympia picked up donated furniture all over western Massachusetts. By the end of the drive, Olympia had filled 9 trucks up with donations from 85 furniture pick ups!
All the donated furniture goes to the coalition’s furniture bank in Lynn, MA. This program gives furniture to formerly homeless families transitioning to permanent housing. These donations fulfill basic needs and make a big difference in turning local families’ new houses into homes. The MA Coalition for the Homeless has been running one of the largest furniture bank programs in the country for over 25 years.
Big thanks to our friends at the Greater Boston Association of Realtors who were our partners in this event. Our VP of National Accounts, Mark McEwen, did a great job working with them to coordinate the drive.
Olympia is always interested in working with our business partners to help better our community. Feel free to contact us if you’re looking for help with your next charitable event.
