"Virtual Warehouse"
"United, there is little we cannot do." 
--President John Kennedy
What Is the "Virtual Warehouse"? 

First of all, it's not an actual building. It's just two lists of items -- such as furniture, appliances, and other household goods.

One list is that of items that residents of our community are willing to donate, free of charge, to other households in our community which need the items. 

The other list is that of items that households in our community need. 

How Does the "Virtual Warehouse" Work?

People with an item or items to donate call the "Virtual Warehouse." They give their nameand phone number, and describe the item they have to donate. They also agree to hold onto the item for at least two weeks, to give us time to find a household that needs the item. 

People who need an item call the "Virtual Warehouse." They give their name and phone number, and describe what they need. 

When we can match an item needed with an item available, we call the two people, and notify them. If they can make the transfer themselves, they do. 

If they need help moving the item from one household to the 
other, we try to help them move it. 

How Do I Learn More About the "Virtual Warehouse"?

For more information about the "Virtual Warehouse," or to donate an item, or to request an item, please call Burke CARES at 703-425-0423, and we will put you in touch with the Coordinator of the "Virtual Warehouse."

foremost I shall require courage and cheerfulness." --Anne Frank
