Hello Forklift Fans,

It's been a busy year here at the Community Forklift warehouse! In 2017, we were able to provide $35,000 of home essentials to our neighbors in need, distribute $22,500 of free supplies to local nonprofits and community groups, offer free DIY workshops to the public every month, and provide green jobs for several excellent workforce trainees.

Every day we work hard to lift up our community, so this month we're asking you to give us a lift! Please consider a gift to support our community service programs and green workforce development efforts, and allow us to continue rescuing good materials from the landfill.

Community Forklift is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.

Building a playground for DC Prep

This month, we've been sharing stories on our blog about how we're making a difference here in the DC region.

A veteran gets creative with building materials in the Art Therapy program at the DC Medical Center.

If you like what you see and want to lend a hand, you can send us a check or make a financial contribution  on our website . Every gift, large or small, helps us fulfill our mission to lift up communities through reuse.

If money is tight but you want to support what we do, please give us a lift by sharing our stories with your friends, family members, and coworkers. With more people aware of our cause, the stronger our community grows.

Thank you,
The Forklifters
