Independent homewares stores Didriks and Local Root will work together with local non-profit Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts, Inc., to provide dinnerware and kitchenware for families transitioning out of homelessness with their Switch Up event.
September 15th to October 15th customers can Switch Up their used dinnerware and kitchenware for 15% off corresponding items at Didriks and Local Root. This promotion is in-store only. Collected items will be donated to Furnishing Hope.
Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts, Inc. is a Cambridge based nonprofit that was founded in 2012 to help Boston area families transitioning out of homelessness. They partner with local agencies who work with homeless families to identify those who have little or no resources and help them to create a home as they move into stable housing. They provide furniture, home goods, and moving services to these families. To date, Furnishing Hope has provided home essentials to over 100 Boston area families.
This is the second year Didriks and Local Root have partnered with Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts through their annual Switch Up campaign. Founder and Executive Director of Furnishing Hope Suzy Palitz expressed her gratitude for their contribution explaining, "Last year's Switch Up provided over 20 families with much needed dinnerware, glassware and cookware, making a huge difference in their lives. Thank you to Didriks and Local Root for giving families transitioning out of homelessness a better chance at a new start as they work to rebuild their lives!"
