We have trade-in sales throughout the year to benefit charities like the Arapahoe County Foster Care and the Denver Rescue Mission. Children move from home to home, often with nothing more than a trash bag for their possessions. We have been fortunate to help by taking in trades that we donate to Foster Care and the Denver Rescue Mission. We make sure the rolling suitcases are clean and functional, so the user will have something more than a trash bag.
We have met professionals who were once part of foster care who have discussed the difficulties of moving from home to home. As simple as an old suitcase may seem to you or me, it became their companion through their life’s journey. It had more meaning than just a suitcase; it had a base of stability and a place to hold their possessions, often all their possessions.
The Denver Rescue Mission is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of homeless men, women, and children in Denver and Northern Colorado. Being homeless is difficult enough; just having a rolling bag to hold important possessions is one way we can help. The Denver Rescue Mission has the goal of returning homeless men, women, and children to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens. Our reward comes when we see trade-in luggage being used to improve a lifestyle that we can only imagine how difficult it must be. We even had a homeless man search us out as he traveled through Englewood. He stopped by the store at closing, hugged Dave, and with tears in his eyes, and thanked Dave for his wheeled travel case.
If you have a charity and feel we can help in some way, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are a small company, and we gladly hold special events, packing demonstrations, travel seminars and work with you to do what we can for our Denver community and your charity. We are neighbors to all in the Denver metro area.
