Mission Statement


From your attic to a needy home, one wish at a time Each year our project provides $1.4 million in value of free furniture, home, clothing and baby goods for more than 25,000 needy people. Basic things like clothing, furniture and baby gear are life changing and mean families can stay housed in the Merrimack Valley, MA. Every $1 donated is leveraged into $4 in value of free goods given out and 2/3 of those we serve are children. In addition, we recycle more than 600 tons of goods a year. Every couch and lamp in a new home means one less in the landfill.

Description


we supply goods to clients working with the system that are referred by our partner agencies. More than 60 social service agencies refer clients to us including: homeless shelters, elder services, government assistance programs, child care early intervention and many other social service agencies in the region. Our 13,000 sq ft warehouse in Lowell provides a safe place for people to donate and volunteer. It is also a convenient spot for caseworkers to find the basic goods their clients need. Recycling home and baby goods helps clients of all ages to thrive in this failing economy while saving space in our local landfills. Every wish come true means one more bed that is not in a landfill and more space in your attic.
