07 Oct Good360 Nonprofit Partner Surpasses $1.5 Million in Savings to Local Charities
MCS has been able to provide these savings to local nonprofits through the Framing Hope Warehouse, built in 2012. The warehouse, an element of the Framing Hope program sponsored by Good360 and The Home Depot Foundation, collects a wide variety of donated products from fifteen local Home Depot stores. In turn, the donations are distributed to nonprofits around South Florida at little to no cost, resulting in $1.5 million in savings for local charities since 2012.
“Honestly, it is pretty overwhelming to think that a little ‘mom & pop’ nonprofit can have a direct positive impact on other nonprofits in our region,” said Greg Bales, Founder of MCS. “Once we were approved by Good360 to open the Framing Hope Warehouse, we have continued to grow by adding more donation partners and nonprofit members.”
MCS has donated to more than 200 nonprofits, which have then used the donations to provide support for the disadvantaged and disenfranchised in South Florida. For example, the HELO Foundation supports transitioning veterans and has been able to triple its number of veterans served since partnering with MCS. Tayan Alliance, a low-income housing developer, saved $10,000 on just two homes thanks to MCS. The Framing Hope Warehouse has transformed countless lives throughout South Florida.
Good360 is thrilled to see yet another nonprofit partner creating such incredible change, and we look forward to seeing how MCS – and other charities in our network – use product donations through Good360 to do more good in the future.
