The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles recently made a huge donation to hospitals in Port-au-Prince, Haiti who are still struggling in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake three years ago. All totaled the donation represents over $300,000 but it’s not money that made its way to Haiti but much needed equipment and hospital furniture.
“We want to set a course of excellence, reminiscent of great teaching hospitals in the U.S. This represents a generous donation of specialized medical equipment, hospital bed frames, cribs, pediatric ventilators, incubator warmers and other supplies that are in short supply and badly needed in Haiti. The hospitalized children will benefit greatly,” Dr. Henri Ford told a local news organization. He’s Los Angeles surgeon-in-chief who will actually be traveling to his native country later this month to help oversee the distribution of the more than 650 items.
Most of what is being donated has been in storage for over a year and is still viable. The items included are 60 hospital beds, 26 cribs, 118 nightstand, 31 parent sleeper chairs, ventilators, cardiac monitors, exam tables, wheel chairs, scales and I.V. poles. This proves that just because something isn’t being used or is in storage doesn’t mean it can’t be put to work again. Do you think you have something like that in your home? If so, then Junk King Los Angeles would be the perfect partner to help you get rid of it. That’s because Junk King goes out of its way to see if collected items can be refurbished and turned over to local LA charities. You don’t have to worry about picking those charities or figuring out if your used furniture is worthy; the Junk King crew will handle all of that as part of their complete removal service.
If something you’re donating can’t be fixed up it might end up at an LA recycling center. That’s another way that Junk King handles the responsible disposal of all that they collect. Quite often most of the workday for a Junk King LA crew is taken up in traffic as they travel to one drop-off center to another. As a LA resident you know what that kind of traffic is like but with Junk King on your side you won’t be stuck there. You also won’t be paying for any additional travel time or dumping fees. All you’ll be charged is by the amount of space your junk takes up on the back of their truck. When you get right down to it, Junk King is really your best option for all types of junk removal.
