Malone Pioneers Furniture Collection
The Malone University Pioneer football team is collaborating with the YWCA Emergency Shelter program and area moving companies in an all out effort to help greater Canton area individuals transition out of emergency housing. Collection day is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Anyone wishing to make a donation must live in the greater Canton area and schedule in advance for a home pick-up time by calling the Canton YWCA at 330-453-7644. Members of the football team will provide the "muscle," volunteering their time to carry, load, and unload larger items. Trucks and drivers are being donated by North Canton Church of Christ food and clothing ministry, Abbott Moving and Storage, and Dehoff Realtors/Jeff Ury. Chick-fil-A is donating lunch tickets to help feed the team. Items will be taken to the YWCA's warehouse and later distributed to persons as they transition from the emergency shelter to more permanent housing. Collections can also be scheduled throughout the year by calling the YWCA at 330.453.7644.
