As small business owners, we at The Beard Group believe it is important to give back to the communities we serve. We often attend fundraisers, donate to auctions or give monetarily to local non-profits whose causes we admire. We’re no Bono, Bill & Melinda Gates or Peter B. Lewis, but we do what we can.
One of the more rewarding ways we give is via our periodic visit from Habitat for Humanity. We have a dedicated garage bay in our Cleveland, OH shop used to store items collected from the demolition phase of our various remodeling projects. Items including solid oak doors, sinks, vanities, faucets, light fixtures and appliances, are all kept and stored until we hit critical mass. We then call the local Habitat office and describe the size of the load and within a few days they arrive. They bring a truck, we load it, and they clean it up to resell or utilize in one of their homes for low income or displaced families. Knowing the items aren’t clogging a landfill is a double bonus!
I snapped a few pics last week when they came to our shop. I thought it was important for you to see our end of the bargain upheld. Perhaps you see something that used to be yours!
If you ever have an item you think might benefit Habitat for Humanity, give us a call and we’ll be happy to arrange to pick it up and add it to our donation. Some items are just too heavy or cumbersome to be loaded into a car and dropped off, and they don’t always send a truck for just a few items. So let us know and we’ll come by!
