123JUNK is pleased to be working with A Wider Circle as one of our charitable partners.
Celebrating 15 years in public service in October 2016, A Wider Circle demonstrates passion about its mission to end poverty, providing resources so that every child and adult has a chance to succeed and the opportunities to live well. In the past 15 years, they have served 170,000 children and adults, furnished 29,000 homes, hosted 90,000 volunteers, helped 5,000 adults prepare for the workforce, and redistributed 40 million pounds of furniture.
A Wider Circle’s services are provided free of charge and include the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program, where furniture, household items and small good are provided to families transitioning out of shelters, escaping domestic violence, or living without basic need items. Each year, they furnish the homes of more than 4,000 families.
123JUNK is a major provider of an endless supply of household furniture and goods to A Wider Circle’s Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program. From our daily pickups and cleanouts throughout the Montgomery County, Maryland area, we cull through our loads and deliver perfectly re-usable items to our drop-off point where A Wider Circle volunteers can gather the items to recycle them back into the community. A list of needed items is available on their website.
You can take pleasure in the fact that the simple act of calling 123JUNK for pickup of unwanted or unused furnishings and household items spreads wider than just removing junk from your home or office. What you no longer need can indeed be a windfall for someone who has nothing or is starting over. Plus, you receive a receipt for your donation that you can deduct on your tax returns.
In addition to furniture and household good donations, A Wider Circle also collects Essentials, like healthy, non-perishable food, new personal care items, and non-toxic cleaning supplies, and clothing and accessories to help outfit clients for interviews and jobs.
A Wider Circle’s services extend far beyond furnishing a home. The organization also assists with Workforce Development, Wellness Programming, Well Mother/Well Baby Programs, and Public Housing Wellness. “We are dedicated to helping individuals and families pursue a new vision for their lives – a vision that does not include poverty.”
Volunteers are always welcome, and so are financial donations. “We depend on donations from local community members, businesses and civic organizations in order to provide services to our clients free of charge.” Just $50 provides a child or adult with the basic items – from beds, tables and chairs to sheets and towels. $80 fuels the trucks for day, $250 covers the cost of supplies and materials for educational workshops, and $500 can fund a beautification project at a low-income school or neighborhood. This November, you can help sponsor a family for Thanksgiving dinner or donate gifts and gift cards for the December holidays.
At 123JUNK, we made it our mission from the start to do good for the communities in which we work. We are proud to be able to assist A Wider Circle and support their goal to eliminate poverty in our neighborhoods.
