SPECIAL OFFER for Agencies:

We at the Wishbook received this very generous offer for furniture from RIT

 

My name is Ethan Koval, and I am the Program Director of Goodbye Goodbuy, RITs Move Out Program. Currently, there are hundreds of high quality furniture items at RIT that will soon be thrown out. We have been finding places to donate it, but we simply have too many items for the connections we have in the city. Would it be possible to make a public post advertising this on Community Wishbook?

Please contact Mr Koval at Ekoval88@outlook.com if you are interested.
Thank you!
