THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING BACK

8th June 2018

On June 12, 2016 the Pulse shootings occurred at the Orlando nightclub Pulse, which killed 49 innocent people. Orlando experienced a tragedy which gained world wide attention; we were outraged, discouraged and distraught.

However, after the initial shock, the City Beautiful and her people pulled together and decided to push back with love, encouragement, strength and growth. People lined up to donate blood, water etc. they donated money and time and they made a commitment to help.

Which is why Dovetail Interiors has decided to support the city in "Act Love Give Day" annually, to honor our fallen angels. Inspired by the message put out by OneOrlandoAlliance.org we participate with an Orlando United by giving back as follows..

ACT by getting involved, organizing our inventory and clearing out our warehouse and giving back items that we can do without. This includes gently used items taken out of refurbished properties, or items that have minor flaws.

LOVE by spreading the word about Act Love Give day and sharing inspiring stories on our social media outlets with the hope that others will be inspired to do the same.

GIVE by utilizing local not-for-profit organizations that ensure those who need donated items are served.

June 12th is a day that we dedicate to community service and to remember, honor and respect the lives lost at Pulse.

Throughout the year we give back with the help of the following local agencies:

Goodwill, they accept gently used linens/decor/kitchen items and have many conveniently located drop offs.

Habitat for Humanity, they believe in affordable housing and helping those in need to build shelter. They accept household items like doors, fans and ceiling lights.

AmVets, scheduling a pick up is always fast and easy and the Vets come and collect straight out of our trailer at the warehouse when we have a good pile of housewares.

We would like to thank our team who are always willing and gracious to transport/organize and build and do so with a smile. #actlovegive #orlandounited
