Note: Mark Silverman, president and CEO of Mark’s Moving & Storage, recently established the Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation to help provide repurposed furniture to those in need. While the foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Mark’s Moving is an integral part of the foundation’s operation and regularly collects furniture on the foundation’s behalf. We’ll occasionally send you updates on the foundation and its growth.
Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation recently received a major donation from The Eagle Leasing Company in Southborough, Mass. Eagle gifted a 53-foot trailer to be used in the foundation’s furniture collection efforts.“We’re extremely grateful for Eagle’s generosity and its support of our foundation,” said Mark E. Silverman, founder and president of Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation. “With the new trailer, we’ll be able to help local communities in a way we simply couldn’t before.”
Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to re-purpose discarded furniture and provide for charities and individuals in need. Since 2011, the foundation and its partners have distributed more than 2,700 pieces of re-purposed furniture. More than 300,000 pounds, or 150 tons, of furniture have been given to individuals and local charities, such as the Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, United Way of Tri-County and Household Goods.
The Eagle Leasing Company is the Northeast’s largest trailer and container leasing company, with a customer base ranging from residential to industrial and more than 14,000 units in its fleet. The company has more than 130 employees in three locations, including Southborough and Oxford, Mass., and Orange, Conn.
