Lifting up communities through reuse
Community Forklift Supports Our Community
Our Community Supports Us
Community Forklift is thankful for our donors who make it possible for us to give back to our community.
One way we give back to our community is by donating household and home improvement essentials to families and individuals in need.

Susana and Jane with Air Conditioner
“Thank you for working with me with the air conditioners. I really appreciate it. You did a good job of hanging in there with me.” –Mr. H
“…you guys provide home essentials with a smile. It is evident that Community Forklift is truly here for the community, and the community is better because of the great services you provide!” –Mr. Patterson, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)
