The entire team at 123JUNK wants to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season this year. We also want to take this moment to remind people how much the small event of clearing out their house or office helps so many families in our own communities.
This year, 123JUNK performed thousands and thousands of junk hauling jobs throughout Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. In almost every one (if not all) of these jobs, we were able to find items that we could donate to one of our charity partners.
Our trained teams go through each load we pick up and carefully pull out items such as furniture, household and kitchen goods, working appliances, and so much more that are still perfectly usable. We deliver these to our pickup locations, and sometimes to the charity partner themselves, so that they can either sell them in their retail stores to raise money for their causes and community members, or donate these items directly to families who need them.
The Loudoun Habitat ReStore and Habitat ReStore Metro Maryland use these donated items to help esatablish homes for singles and families in their communities who could not afford to do so on their own. While Northern Virginia Family Services helps to empower individuals to improve their quality of life through initiatives in mental health, foster care and adoption, early childhood development, homelessness, and workforce development, to name a few services. The Montgomery County Humane Society uses the sales to raise money to care for abandoned and needy animals.
A Wider Circle provides household items and small goods to families transitioning out of shelters, living without the basic items for life, or those escaping from domestic violence to set up households—up to 4,000 a year! The organization also helps adults to prepare to get jobs and offers wellness and mother/baby programs.
The organization No One Left Behind helps to create households from nothing for Afghan and Iraqi combat interpreters and their families relocated to the United States by the U.S. Government in order to often save their lives from Taliban retaliation.
During the holidays, when you think of giving, think beyond the brightly-wrapped gifts to how items you no longer need or want can mean so much to those in our community who have little or nothing—those who are starting over, or those who are arriving in this country alone and afraid. All you have to do is call 123JUNK and we’ll gladly come to your home and office and haul away your junk (in our bright red—how festive—uniforms and trucks!). Contact us today to schedule your pickup.
123JUNK is proud to be a part of our communities in Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., and thankful this holiday season to all the people who use our service. We wish everyone a very happy holiday season.
