Armored Self Storage
Assist with delivery and set-up of homes for individuals and families transitioning from homelessness and foster youth aging from the system.
Join us on Moving Day to assist with delivery as we transform a house into a home for a homeless family, individual, or foster youth. By providing beds, tables, dishes, couches, etc. We ease the burden of our clients trying to furnish an empty apartment while working towards becoming self sustainable. Our service allows our clients to focus on work, school, and caring for their families.
We meet in the front parking lot at our storage unit, Armored Self Storage, 14245 S. 48th Street, Phoenix, 85048 at 7:30am. With the help of professional movers, we will load the truck, drive to the client’s home, unload the truck, set up the furniture and unpack household items. Volunteers are asked to carpool or drive themselves to the delivery location. Location of delivery will be determined closer to the work date.
Able-bodied volunteers may be asked to lift heavy items and/or assemble furniture even though we have professional movers. There are less strenuous volunteer activities as well (unpacking boxes and making beds). A Volunteer Waiver and Confidentiality Agreement MUST be signed prior to volunteer day. Times may vary depending on location of the client’s home and number of moves to be completed. We usually finish work by noon.
Is there an age requirement to volunteer?
No, but we ask all volunteers under the age of 15 to be accompanied by an adult.
Will I be required to lift heavy items?
No. We have a good mix of large and small items easy enough for anyone to carry.
