NBCUniversal Foundation Project Innovation Award
Community Forklift was recently honored for our innovative work at the intersection of environmental and social justice through our Home Essentials Program.
Community Forklift takes donations of building materials, but did you know we now take vehicle donations? Not just that old beater in the back yard, but ANY type of vehicle!
Car Donation
Cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, magic buses, Learjets, forklifts, battleships, UFOs, cruise ships, Tardises, or submarines—we take ’em.
Leaky and Stumpy
Our two OLD forklifts were ready to retire years ago. If you have a working forklift to donate, we’ll give you naming rights!
