Keep Us Trucking Donor Appreciation

Furniture Bank & CanadaHelps

When Furniture Bank was down, our supporters rallied round and offered us their in-kind and financial donations to help us back on our feet. So we asked them round this morning to thank them in person.

Furniture Bank & CanadaHelps

Paul and Rami from CanadaHelps which launched the campaign to Keep Furniture Bank trucking, with Sister Anne & Dan Kershaw (Founder and ED of Furniture Bank respectively).

 

Furniture Bank & Rotary Club Etobicoke

Gill and Andre Dugas from The Rotary Club of Etobicoke whose financial donation enabled us to continue to make furniture deliveries to our clients, with Sister Anne, Dan Kershaw and Andrew Chung (Chairman of Furniture Bank’s Board of Directors).

 

Furniture Bank & 1-800-Rid-Of-It

Paul and Tammy from Furniture Bank with Rick Crawford from 1800-Rid-Of-It, who together with others in the trucking community, donated truck and crew time when our trucks were immobile.

 

Thanks to our donors’ in-kind and financial donations, not a single client was affected by our setback. Instead, 381 individuals who were at risk of not having their furniture delivered during this timeline, now have furniture.

 

Who Our Supporters Helped

Number of clients who benefited from your support

 

Your support ensured that our clients have beds to sleep in and tables to eat on. In fact they were given them much more than that: the dignity, security and stability associated with living in a furnished home. For that we say THANK YOU to all our friends and supporters.
