Scott Harris – established residential real estate broker for BHS and Upper West Side resident -- has spearheaded a “Quarantine Spring Clean Challenge” in partnership with Goodwill NYNJ and the city’s moving companies.
As New Yorkers shelter in place and embark on spring cleaning, this initiative facilitates safe and secure sidewalk/curbside pickup of donated items from residential buildings across Manhattan – at a time when donation centers are closed due to COVID-19. Partnering moving companies will then deliver your donations to the warehouses of the recipient organizations. In turn, this effort enables Goodwill NYNJ and other donor recipients to continue their work -- such as workforce training and development. “With our time freed up from normal work, it occurred to me that having a clean house, right in line with spring cleaning, would be just a focus for many people,” said Scott. “Then, my mind just wandered to all of my relationships with moving companies, and the connection was made. Only when I spoke to Katy at Goodwill did I realize just how important it is not only for people to be able to donate, but for recipient organizations to get the donations.” “We’re so grateful Brown Harris Stevens NYC team has chosen to partner with us – together, through simply Spring Cleaning and donating, we are making a positive impact to the environment, keeping people healthy and getting our neighbors back to work through our mission programs, something that is needed more than ever!” said Katy Gaul-Stigge, President + CEO of Goodwill NYNJ.” Donated items are limited to clothing, books and household items.
