Central Virginia REALTORS® Help Clear the Clutter for a Cause

By on September 10, 2014

caritas_featureEach year, the Central Virginia Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Chapter, (a non-profit organization recognizing REALTORS® for their professional accomplishments in both experience and education), selects a local charity to get involved with and support.

This year, they have teamed up with PODS to hold furniture drives for the Caritas Furniture Bank through the end of October. Caritas is a local charity that works with the homeless by providing programs that help get the homeless into permanent housing. The Caritas Furniture Bank addresses the large need for furniture and household items as participants in these programs move into housing.

“The CRS Chapter and PODS have teamed up to provide PODS at three different locations, where REALTORS® and/or their clients can donate furniture, mattresses, or other household items,” said Blake Eudailey, current Chapter President.  “We are proud and excited to be able to work with and support the Caritas Furniture Bank.”

Caritas also offers the option of arranging a home pickup of items for a fee, (averaging $30-$40 in the Richmond metro area), based on the items donated and distance traveled. A precise fee is provided when a pickup appointment is booked.
Pickup appointment scheduling: Please call 804-343-5008
PODS Access Details: Please contact Becky Greene Mon-Fri, 9:00a.m.-5:00p.m., at 804-282-7678

All donations are tax-deductible and a gift receipt will be provided at the time of donation.
