Johnson Team Moving Truck Helps Local Non-Profit House 2 Home

Did you see mention of  the Johnson Team moving truck in the Bellingham Herald over the weekend?  House 2 Home , one of the Johnson Team’s featured moving truck users of the quarter was featured in their Volunteer View section.

Here’s what House 2 Home had to say about us to the Bellingham Herald:

“The Johnson Team sponsors House 2 Home and makes its moving truck available to community organizations and their clients. We borrowed the truck. Then there was manpower to assemble. Three volunteers were available, one is a retired gentleman, one man works full time and volunteers on his days off and the third is a full-time mom and volunteer. The trio met up with the House 2 Home coordinator and on that day served four grateful households with furniture. The donor, the volunteers, and the use of the truck were each critical to this job and our program.”  Source: The Bellingham Herald Read more here

Thank you to House 2 Home for all they are doing for our community. Remember, your real estate sales help us give back to the community in which we live. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in Bellingham or Whatcom County give us a call at 360-303-2734 or email us at Info@JohnsonTeamRealEstate.com, we’d be happy to help!
