What started out as a practical joke has ended up being a special holiday tradition for the last 30 years. This is the Annual Bob Telmosse Christmas Giveaway started by local businessman Bob Telmosse over 30 years ago. Back then, the late Mr. Telmosse owned a very successful furniture store in the Denver area. As a joke, one of his friends placed an ad in the local paper proclaiming that Bob would be giving away food at his store. When folks showed up for the charity, Bob felt so embarrassed he told them to come back the next day. By then he lined up some donations and handed out packages of food. That idea stuck and Bob continued with the holiday giveaway. Today, that tradition is carried on by dozens of faithful volunteers. This year thousands of local folks turned up at the Freedom Financial Expo Center to get free toys, food and clothing with no questions asked. That’s just how Bob would have wanted.
The volunteers are always amazed that no matter how grim things might look in terms of donations, a Christmas miracle always seems to happen and there is plenty on hand to give away. This year they only had about a dozen bikes to give away until the last minute when over 500 bikes were donated. It’s a perfect reminder of the spirit of giving.
Fortunately, that spirit of giving doesn’t have to end with the holiday season. You can make donations to many charitable organizations and clean up your home at the same time all thanks to the effort of Junk King Colorado Springs.
When Junk King collects something that could possibly be repurposed they will drop it off at one of those charities for a donation. This includes any type of furniture, appliance or any type of item that could be of benefit to someone in need. Best of all you don’t have to figure out if your give-away stuff is worthy of a donation; Junk King will make that determination. All you need to focus on is picking out the items you want taken away and the Junk King crew will handle the rest.
As far as pricing is concerned, Junk King will only charge you by the amount of space your item takes up on the back of their truck. There will be no hidden charges or dumping fees. Whether your junk is recycled, donated or placed in a certified landfill it’s a safe bet that Junk King Colorado Springs is the best option for cleaning out the clutter of your life.
