Support the lift!
Forklift Fans know that we take donations of materials, furniture, fixtures, appliances, and many other items, but many don’t realize that we also welcome financial contributions.

Our warehouse and truck staff who wear the gloves are critical to the labor intensive reuse process. Your financial contribution will help keep them protected, and will help Community Forklift to continue to improve our community.

3 ways to donate a few bucks:
→ Donate during your free pickup
Our truck crews can take credit card or paypal donations when picking up your items.
→ Add a contribution at checkout
Community Forklift invests in our community. We’re asking our community to invest in us with a financial contribution.
