"I am only one, but I am one!  I cannot do everything, but I can do something.  And I will not let what I cannot do, stop me from doing what I can do." 

~Edward Everett Hale

People with pickups/trailers:  We often get offers from donors with only one or two items to donate.  This is a great opportunity for one or two person teams to complete smaller jobs and reduce pickup wait times.
