Client Request: Vacuum Cleaner

Back in September, one of our case managers was working with someone who needed a vacuum because major renovations were causing dust to pour into her apartment. Thanks to our readers and a helping hand from DCist, we had a vacuum dropped off for this person within 24 hours. The person we were helping was humbled by the generosity of our readers, as was our staff.

With that said, I have to send out another plea. The same woman came in yesterday and said that, unfortunately, the vacuum broke! If you have a good, reliable vacuum that you would be willing to donate, please contact me (Matt) at msiemer [at] breadforthecity [dot] org
