Mark’s Moving & Storage Inc. Donates Services to JF&CS Center for Basic Needs Assistance
WALTHAM, MA (December 27, 2016) – Mark’s Moving & Storage Inc., based in Westborough, Massachusetts, has generously agreed to provide free moving services for JF&CS clients served by the Center for Basic Needs Assistance in 2017. The Center for Basic Needs Assistance (CBNA) is our integrated and comprehensive response to the issues most commonly facing people with low income in our community. Thanks to the support we will receive from Mark’s Moving, we will be able to alleviate the costs incurred when helping clients move, thereby making critical funds available to benefit our clients in other ways.
The average cost of moving our clients is $770 per client. Last year alone, we helped move 22 clients. These can include moves from a homeless shelter to permanent housing, helping a survivor of domestic abuse and her family move to a home away from the abuser, and assisting an individual move to more affordable housing.
“We are thankful for this incredible donation from Mark’s Moving & Storage Inc.,” shared JF&CS CEO Rimma Zelfand. “Moving costs can be a significant expense. With the help of Mark’s Moving we will be able to serve more clients in more profound ways.”
JF&CS first worked with Mark’s Moving & Storage Inc. when the company helped move the JF&CS Brookline office to Brighton. We are grateful for their ongoing support.
