Nothing can replace all that was lost during the recent Super Storm Sandy that battered the east coast. However, there was an amazing attempt to heal some of the emotional wounds and raise fund for the displaced. On 12/12/12 such legendary stars as Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones joined other rock ‘n’ rollers for a benefit concert that brought in over $50 million dollars. Among the recipient of those donations was the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church which needed $25,000 to put in shower stalls and beds for all the volunteers who came to the region to rebuild. Another group received 25K to provide storage for families whose homes were damaged but were able to save a few items. Rockaway Relief was given $100,000. This is a group that was formed after the storm by a former New York restaurateur who wanted to help out his hometown. The good news is that this spirit of giving and volunteering shows no signs of letting up. That’s important because there is certainly a lot more work to be done.
Another organization that is doing what they can is Junk King Capital District. Not only is the Albany area branch of Junk King involved in many charitable efforts but they also make it a point to donate any collected junk that might be refurbished to those organizations which can benefit from such items. Those charities employ skilled workers to reupholster furniture or give a table a new paint job. Those piece of furniture can then be handed over to families in need or sold at a discount with the funds going back to the charity. This means your junk will be given a second lease on life.
The best thing about this donation effort is you don’t have to do a thing except hire Junk King. They’ve already got a long list of terrific organizations who will know just what to do with your junk. You also don’t have to worry about figuring out whether or not your collected stuff is worthy of refurbishing. The Junk King crews are experts at making those kinds of judgment calls. All you need to think about is what you want to get rid of!
Hiring Junk King Capital District to haul off your unwanted items is going to free up a lot of space especially if those items are of the oversized variety. The Junk King crew will do the lifting and loading. You can proudly stand on your porch and wave good-bye to your junk knowing it’s going off to a much better place!
