GET INVOLVEDUpcoming Welcomings
We now hold Welcomings every other month in Marin and Sonoma Counties, furnishing four households in Marin County and two to four in Sonoma County each time. Donors must be willing to hold their furnishing donations until the designated drop-off date in their county.
COVID 19Our Protocol for Welcomings
In carrying out our “Welcomings” during the time of Covid, we are taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our donors, volunteers, and the families and individuals we help. Volunteers wear masks and practice social distancing while working in our clients’ apartments, as do the residents. When donors arrive to drop off items on the morning of the “Welcoming,” they remain in their cars while volunteers remove the donations from the trunks.
Our clients leave their apartments before the moving trucks arrive with their new furnishings. When we call them to return home (typically three to four hours after they leave), both volunteers and clients wear masks.
