Our nonprofit, My Recovery Day, desperately needs an extended cargo van or small box truck to pick up and deliver donations of household goods, furniture and other items to support individuals in addiction recovery. Our current cargo van died and the repairs needed are just not worth performing. We had submitted an application through Ohio's Van Grant program in January. However, in the review process the program was halted to focus on COVID which is understandable. So, currently we are operating our donation pickups and drop offs by using personal vehicles and renting vehicles from U-Haul which is expensive and inconvenient. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
My Recovery Day Programs Rely Exclusively On Picking Up Donations
The Recovery Bank is a FREE resource for individuals to get furniture, appliances, kitchenware, general household and bathroom items and more. Items are new to gently used from donations we receive and set aside. It is available to individuals that have gone through treatment or sober living housing and need some basics to start again. Sweet!
The “J.O.B.S.” (Just Online Being Sober) Program is an opportunity to build a foundation of basic technology skills in a friendly, safe, sober and supportive environment. Our team works with recovering individuals to develop the technology skills necessary for them to sell items online to make money or find a career path requiring them to be competent technically. Donated items such as antiques are sold on various online auction and storefront platforms such as eBay and Etsy. The revenue generated is shared between the nonprofit and the individuals. How awesome is that!
Help us to continue to support recovering individuals that are making positive choices in their life. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by addiction. So, please donate now to help us buy a van or truck to continue to secure more donated items. The more we raise, gives us the flexability to get a more reliable vehicle or possibly a new one ... maybe even two!
If you know someone that can donate a working van or truck, please have them contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You For Your Support and Sharing This Campaign!
A Couple Quick Notes:
This year only, 100% of your donation to My Recovery Day is tax deductible because of the CARES Act 2020 (ask your accountant)
Lastly, #GivingTuesday is December 1 this year. So, give generously to your favorite charity, especially ones hit hard by COVID like ours.
