We are very proud to donate as much of what we lug away from your home or business as possible. You will see our bright green trucks making stops at the below charities a few times a week throughout New York City. And not only are your items going to a great cause, you are also benefiting in the form of a tax deductible receipt! You pay us to remove your items, and for your part in choosing an eco-friendly solution to your junk removal needs, we are happy to pay it forward and pass along the savings to you. The tax-deductible receipt can sometimes off-set most or even all of the cost of our services depending on the items we are able to donate on your behalf!
Big ReuseBig Reuse is New York City's only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials. The reuse centers have everything from panel doors to high end refrigerators, window shutters to reclaimed lumber, kitchen cabinet sets to salvaged flooring. We visit one of their two locations, either Gowanus or Astoria, at least once a day to donate building materials.
RefoundryRefoundry is an innovative new non-profit that trains formerly incarcerated people to repurpose discarded materials into home furnishings and then incubates participants into their own businesses.
Housing WorksHousing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Their mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain their efforts. We donate furniture and other items several times a week.
NYCHAThe New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)'s mission is to increase opportunities for low- and moderate-income New Yorkers by providing safe, affordable housing and facilitating access to social and community services. More than 400,000 New Yorkers reside in NYCHA’s 334 public housing developments around the five boroughs, and another 235,000 receive subsidized rental assistance in private homes through the NYCHA-administered Section 8 Leased Housing Program. The Junkluggers brings gently-used furniture to NYCHA's Furniture Exchange Program to be distributed throughout the community.
The Lantern GroupThe Lantern Organization participates in activities that strengthen New York communities by increasing the supply of affordable housing combined with on-site opportunities for personal enrichment and growth. Lantern houses special needs and low-income populations, including: families headed by an adult living with HIV, mental illness, or other special needs; young adults who have aged out of foster care; and families headed by a senior aged adult who is caring for children. The Junkluggers is proud to work with The Lantern Group by donating furniture directly to their clients.
Goodwill/Goodwill IndustriesGoodwill works to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work. You’ll spot Junkluggers trucks making donations at various locations throughout the city everyday.
Salvation ArmyThe Salvation Army has many facets, but we primarily work with the The Salvation Army Family Stores which are the core of their Adult Rehabilitation Center philosophy. We donate to the Salvation Army community store in Hamden, which provides quality clothing, furniture and other goods at bargain prices. The proceeds from these stores are used to fund their Adult Rehabilitation Centers which are thus self sustaining. The Salvation Army helps employ rehabilitating adults in their Family Stores which provide great deals and bargain prices on clothing, furniture, household goods, sporting equipment, books, electronics and much more.
Habitat for Humanity ReStoreThe ReStore accepts donations of new or nearly new building supplies, furniture and appliances from individuals, contractors, and businesses. Some of the materials will be used to build Habitat homes, and any extra materials will be sold at the Habitat ReStore. Proceeds from the ReStore benefit Habitat for Humanity in its applicable region.
