The ‘Lift Needs a Lift!

Hello Forklift Fans,

It’s been a busy year here at the Community Forklift warehouse. Since January 2017, we’ve provided $35,000 of home essentials to our neighbors in need, created multiple new green jobs, and distributed $22,500 of free supplies to local nonprofits and community groups.

Every day we work hard to lift up our community, so this month we’re asking you to give us a lift! Any financial support you give will go directly towards our Community Services programs and our green workforce development efforts, and allow us to continue rescuing good materials from the landfill.

If you are a Marylander considering a donation this season, remember that we are participating in the Maryland Community Investment Tax Credit Program; a program that rewards Maryland taxpayers who donate to nonprofits that serve local communities. If you make a donation to Community Forklift of $500 or more, you can earn a Maryland tax credit of 50% of the value of your donation.  This tax credit is in addition to Federal and State charitable tax deductions! Reduce your tax liability while helping us lift up local communities!!

If money is tight but you want to support what we do, please give us a lift by sharing our stories with your friends, family members, and coworkers. With more people aware of our cause, the stronger our community grows.

Thank you,

The Forklifters
