Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts is a Cambridge, MA based nonprofit that was founded in 2012 to help Boston area families transitioning out of homelessness. They provide furniture, home goods, and moving services to these families. To date, Furnishing Hope has provided home essentials to over 160 Boston area families.
For four years, through their annual Switch Up campaign in October, Didriks and Local Root have given their customers an opportunity to Switch Up their used dinnerware and kitchenware for 15% off corresponding items at. For example, bring in eight dinner plates and receive 15% off eight new dinner plates.
Said Founder and Executive Director of Furnishing Hope Suzy Palitz, “Last year’s Switch Up provided over 25 families with much needed dinnerware, glassware and cookware, making a huge difference in their lives. Thank you Didriks and Local Root for giving families transitioning out of homelessness a better chance at a new start as they work to rebuild their lives!”
Small and large businesses should take note – this type of campaign is easily replicated. It is such a great and easy idea, and the impact is immediate!
