The Holidays are (Almost!!) Here
Holiday 2017 plans are in motion! Join us in collecting donations and spreading cheer this holiday season. If you are interested in contributing to any of the organizations we work with, please let us know!
It is incredibly important for us to give back to the communities we work and live in, and to ensure that our family, neighbors, friends, team members and customers understand that every little bit helps – A single $1 goes a very long way.
Forbes House for Holiday 2017 Season
This year, Moving Ahead Services will be collecting gift cards to donate to Forbes House. Forbes House is a Lake County domestic violence shelter, providing a safe haven for women and children in abusive situations. Forbes House visitors are not charged for their counseling, stay, food or support – But rather are rewarded once they get their life back and maintain a safe living environment free from their abuser.
Forbes House is small but mighty, however limited in the space they have to store donations. Gift cards are a great way for us all to make a big impact – Whether you can donate $5 or $500. If you are interested in donating gift cards or would like to donate wrapping paper, or learn more about Forbes House wish list of supplies, contact us today!
Each year our holiday season kick off is the Deck the House event with Providence House. Deck the House is their large annual fundraiser, providing donations to operate the crisis nursery throughout the year. Each year, Moving Ahead Services donates T&M to safely wrap, pack and deliver all of the auctioned decorated holiday trees.
This year, Tuesday December 5th is the Annual Deck the House event, and we hope you will join us! If you are unable to join, please consider making a donation to Providence House this holiday season. Just $80 can provide 5 kids with a safe place to sleep and meals to eat.
Move for Hunger
During the holidays and all throughout the year, all Moving Ahead Services locations can be a donation point for any non-perishable food items you’d like to contribute to local food pantries and organizations in need. If you are a moving customer, we can also drop off Move for Hunger boxes for you to pack as you are getting ready for moving day and cleaning out your cupboards.
Join us in celebrating the season by giving back in our community! As always, we are grateful for your support!
