Responses like this are one reason why Community Forklift is staying open during the COVID-19 situation as long as it safe to do so. Community Forklift provided this Maryland Senior Citizen with a working refrigerator, one of the many basic home necessities unavailable to hundreds of people in our area. Our work will help these neighbors live independently in their homes, both during a period of self-isolation and after.

As a non-profit and small business, we are doing our best to provide essential services to our community during this uncertain time. If you’d like to help support our mission, please consider making a financial contribution, shopping online, or buying a gift card. Every little bit helps.

If you’ve already contributed, shopped, or purchased a gift card, thank you so much for your support!


Every time you donate or shop at Community Forklift, you’re helping us lift up local communities through reuse.  We turn the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historical materials, providing free and low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
