Office Move Fosters Generosity
One phone call, four men, and two trucks are subtracting a lot of uncertainties from Call to Freedom’s upcoming move.
After seeing the video KELO did on CTF’s plans to relocate circulating on social media, Angela Drake, General Manager at Two Men and a Truck, picked up the phone.
“We’re always looking for ways to be involved in the community,” says Drake of her decision to contact Call to Freedom. “We jump in when we can.”
Drake assigned two trucks and four movers to assist CTF, which was a godsend.
“We weren’t sure how we were going to recruit enough volunteers with pick-up trucks to transport our whole office,” says Operations Director Julie Klinger. “Angela’s phone call was a welcome surprise!”
Call to Freedom’s new office space comes at just the right time. Thanks to a state grant, CTF has been able to expand its staff in recent weeks, going from four to eight members. It’s current location on Phillips Avenue houses just three offices.
“We’re growing fast, and it’s because the community has embraced the mission of Call to Freedom,” says Klinger. “I am blown away by how generous people are.”
In addition to Two Men and a Truck’s support, Lloyd Companies provided desks, chairs, and a conference room table. A number of donors covered the cost of paint and supplies so that a host of volunteers can paint the new office, giving it a much-needed refresh.
“This larger office space opens up a lot of new possibilities for us,” says Klinger.
And that’s just what Drake wants to see happen. “Call to Freedom is a great cause. We want to support their mission and help them keep the momentum going,” she says.
CTF’s move — originally scheduled for early August — was put on hold to take care of a last-minute maintenance snag. Stay tuned for our revised moving date.
