MOVER Information and Signup Page
Welcome, current and future HWF movers! The purpose of this page is to provide information about Helping With Furniture’s move nights, and to provide details on how to subscribe and unsubscribe from our Movers distribution list.
HWF’s move night occurs each Wednesday. At the start of each week, our President, Co-Founder (and Move Team Lead), Nathalie Maione, will send out an email to everyone on our mover distribution list, requesting volunteers to assist with pick-ups, storage, and deliveries. Move nights typically go from 6pm to 12am. The evening begins with our trucks heading out to collect donated furniture which has been scheduled for pickup. We then return to storage to offload donated furniture and load the trucks with our deliveries for the night. We typically deliver to five families each Wednesday, and the trucks are filled furniture as well as bundles of kitchenware, linens, toys, and other items. When the work at storage is complete, the move team then heads out to make deliveries.
The location of pick-ups and deliveries vary from week to week and this information is distributed via email. We make efforts to arrange a drive for people who don’t have a vehicle. Usually, we ask the volunteer to meet us at one of the stops along the route, where they can then join the team.
In addition to Wednesday nights, volunteers can also assist at the warehouse on Saturdays. The warehouse is open between 10am and 12pm on Saturdays, and our volunteers help facilitate drop-offs and pick-ups. Our warehouse is located at 5350 Canotek Rd Unit 9 in Gloucester.
