JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) February 08, 2018
Baymeadows Moving and Storage is a proud sponsor of AngelAID, a community-based non-profit that is dedicated to helping children in dire circumstances. Baymeadows has been able to provide logistics services to the organization by picking up and delivering donated items from their customers to be sold in AngelAID stores. This includes items such as furniture, clothing, and accessories.
AngelAID is dedicated to providing relief to children who are suffering from abuse, serious illness, and homelessness. 100% of sales from their thrift and estate stores directly benefit children and their families by assisting with the costs of food, housing, medical expenses, transportation, and clothing. Volunteers supply necessities and facilitate payment of expenses directly, to ensure actual needs are met. Families that need help connect to AngelAID through referrals by police, schools, churches and physicians.
Supporting children in need since 1984, AngelAID was founded by Carl and Arlene Shipley, to honor the memory of their adopted daughter Tashia (Butler) Shipley, who suffered sexual abuse and died of AIDS. Since then, the non-profit has helped over 2,000 children in the Jacksonville, FL area, serving children with over 100 different diagnoses. Past charitable events include providing local children with 55,000 gifts at Christmastime, a Thanksgiving dinner festival feeding 1,500 people, and moving 28 families out of homeless shelters and into their own apartments.
The work of AngelAID is made possible by sponsors, private contributions, donated time of their
all-volunteer staff, and sales from their thrift stores. The inventory at their thrift supercenters includes new and gently used children’s clothing, housewares, appliances, business attire, casual clothing, and much more. The stores even include brand name items such as wedding gowns and antiques. AngelAID also holds a 3-day long estate sale every 4-6 weeks. Their 8,000 square foot showroom is stocked with home décor, furniture, and artwork that is for sale.
