    I received a recommendation for Encore from the ICARE Furniture Bank when they were not able to accept my donation of wall units.
    I called today to inquire about a pick up donation and dealt with a lovely volunteer. Unfortunately, I didn’t get her name but would like to thank her for her friendly reception and eagerness to assist me. Due to a late cancellation I was able to have my items picked up today!!! Both Ron and Jack were very accommodating and proved to be enthusiastic ambassadors for your organization. I will certainly recommend your services to others.
