We are intentional in helping you organize your home, and this commitment extends to our process of distributing your donations. We aim to build strong relationships with nonprofit organizations and community partners that prioritize directing donations to those in need. Here are 3 nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in our community…
1. Angels’ Place
Angels’ Place supports single parents and their children by offering access to early childhood education, child care, and a dynamic family support program. The comprehensive family service model implemented at Angels’ Place equips parents and children with the tools necessary to become self-sufficient and lifelong learners. I receive their quarterly newsletter, 'Crib Notes,' which shares success stories and provides a specific list of needs for each center. From the moment you connect with their staff, you can really feel the difference this organization is striving to achieve.
2. Dress for Success- Pittsburgh
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by offering a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help women thrive in both work and life.
Starting a new job can be daunting, but not having the appropriate clothing to begin the interviewing process can be even more challenging—it often makes the difference between seeking gainful employment and settling for any job available. I love that you can donate directly, select an item from their Amazon wish list, or volunteer in person during one of their warehouse days. Dress for Success also continues to sponsor local community events. Imust add that their pop-up FAB sales are one of my favorites community events to attend.
3. Habitat for Humanity
Last but not least, Habitat for Humanity is an organization that holds a special place in our hearts. When we began our journey as a blended family of five, we used our savings to purchase our first home - a fixer-upper. At the time, Larry had just completed his studies and started working as a new electrician when our furnace unexpectedly stopped working. Fortunately, through their weatherization program, we not only avoided a costly repair but also received a new furnace.
That was over 20 years ago, and they continue to provide safe and affordable housing for community members. Frequently, our corporate relocation clients donate gently used furniture, which we, in turn, contribute to the Habitat for Humanity Restore. Additionally, we make monetary donations on behalf of our company.
In a world that is often filled with uncertainty, we encourage you to look for individuals in organizations doing their part. Get involved in your community, learn about their needs, and support them in the best way possible.
