From the Needham Times:
Also receiving a Green Initiative Award was Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation, a non-for profit started by Needham resident Mark Silverman, president and CEO of Marks Moving & Storage Inc. The foundation collects discarded and donated furniture from its customers and then distributes it to charitable institutions. Over five years, more than 2,700 pieces – or about 150 tons of furniture – have been donated. The judges praised Silverman for helping to raise awareness of the problem of furniture disposal, while being a role model for more environmentally beneficial solutions.
