Moving homes can be a painful, yet motivating process of cleaning, organizing and simplifying your life. Attics are cleared, closets are cleaned and those weddings gifts you meant to return in 2007 are packed away for another dusty shelf at the new digs.
Sure, one may have every intention of donating unwanted items to someone who wants or needs them, but the actual process of doing so – especially in the middle of a huge life transition like moving – can be cumbersome.
That’s why we’re thrilled about a new partnership between The Salvation Army Eastern Territory and FlatRate Moving®, the innovative, nationwide leader in moving and storage.
The company is making moves mean more through a new Upcycling Program where customers will be offered two “upcycling” boxes, which can be ordered in advance of the big move, to be filled with unwanted toys, books, clothing and other small home goods. The boxes are then transported free of charge to Salvation Army Family Stores across New York City.
“Through this partnership, FlatRate Moving® will connect our clients to this respected organization and facilitate a culture of upcycling items from those who no longer want them to those who may need them,” said Sharone Ben-Harosh, Founder, FlatRate Moving.
FlatRate’s thoughtful partnership has the potential of delivering 36,000 boxes of gently used goods to The Salvation Army, a great benefit to our Adult Rehabilitation Centers which are funded by the Family Stores, and help provide drug and alcohol counseling to over 300,000 men and women each year.
