Whether you shop or donate, you’re helping neighbors in need

Through our Home Essentials Program, Community Forklift provides free supplies to neighbors in need. Every time you shop or donate, you make it possible for us to distribute building materials, fixtures, appliances, and furniture free-of-cost to local seniors, families, veterans, and other individuals.  Some of them are struggling to afford repairs on the family home, and others are moving into safe housing after a period of homelessness. Thanks to your support this year, so far we’ve distributed $48,326 in materials to 492 people in 171 households. Home Essentials is a low-barrier program, meaning we try to keep our grants as accessible and flexible as we can.  People are referred to us by caseworkers, neighbors, government agencies, nonprofits, teachers, and community leaders.  Here are two examples: “I truly appreciate the services provided at Community Forklift. I was told about this resource by the Aging and Disability Resource Center in DC.   The social work field is filled with rewarding and fulfilling experiences, when you are able to assist people in need of help.  At times, clients need resources that are not affordable or available.  One of the most consistent frustrations for a person in the social work field is when you are unable to assist people in need of resources.   Community Forklift is a breath of fresh air because of the services that you guys provide. I have referred several clients to the program.  Most notably, I was working with a mother in her twenties who needed dressers, beds, and lamps for her three children. After I sent the referral, Community Forklift called the mom and scheduled a time to pick out and pick up the furniture.  The referral was very straight forward and comprehensive.   You not only provide much-needed home essentials, you guys provide home essentials with a smile. I really appreciate the personal touch that I receive each time I call. It is evident that Community Forklift is truly here for the community, and the community is better because of the great services you provide! Thanks!”   –Mr. Patterson, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) at the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF) case management agency. Another person referred to us recently was Ms. G., age 84 and a resident of Hyattsville,...

Who’s thinking about gardening in November?

Who’s thinking about gardening in November? We Are! As the weather gets chilly, most of DC is turning up the thermostat, winterizing yards, and cleaning out cluttered sheds. But Community Forklift is starting to plan for warmer times and our annual spring fling; the Garden Party! Imagine it; a sunny April day, birds singing, live music playing, food trucks cooking, and row upon row of gently used, discounted, and hard-to-find gardening supplies just waiting to be brought home to a new yard. You can help make this happen! Give your old gardening and landscaping supplies a new life by requesting a pick up or dropping off at our warehouse 7 days a week.
