North Shore News by James TreuerFirst Annual Great Vancouver Housewarming Party

Together with our partner 1-800 Rid of It , junk removal company, we furnished 6 homes for families in need! Over June 5 & 6, these families received enough furniture to make their new places into a real home. And we received an overwhelming response to several stories in the media - thank you Vancouver! Please consider sponsoring the cost of furnishing a home - only $260!
