With everyone counting pennies these days, it was good timing and a generous moment at the end of July, when Shurtape Technologies gave away office furniture to nine local non-profits.
The company had opened a new distribution center in Catawba and wanted to find new homes for the furniture they were not taking with them. Shurtape reached out to the Catawba County United Way (CCUW) to help organize the giveaway. The CCUW announced the opportunity through its community partners network.
Overall, 62 items were picked up by the nine local non-profits: The Salvation Army, Sipes, Walk With Me, Family Guidance, Integrated Care of Hickory, Adult Life, Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry, Cognitive Connection and Neighbors Network. The office furniture included office desks, conference tables, paintings, storage cabinets and chairs.
