Don Farr Moving & Manchester Growing Together Garden

On April 6, 2016, Don Farr teamed up with Nova Place to donate 67 planters to North Side’s local Manchester Growing Together Garden.

Altogether the job took six round trips in order to complete, but in the end, it was all worth it. Manchester Growing Together Gardens is a program that embodies hope for a community that needs it. The garden stands to show the residents of the area that no matter how barren the land originally was, you can still grow beautiful things from it. The garden hopes to translate its message to the lives of those who live nearby with the hope that anyone who needs to make something out of nothing in their lives can do so.

Don Farr Moving and Storage is a proud supporter of Manchester Growing Together Gardens and all organizations who inspire hope in others everywhere.

Wilsons Arch – Utah

In our latest trip, spanning from Illinois, to California, and back home to Pennsylvania, Matt and Deejay ventured over to the great Wilson’s Arch in Utah off route 191. This natural sandstone structure holds a vast hole of 91 feet in width, and 46 feet in height.

In case you were wondering, we could successfully park a Don Farr truck within the loop, though the park rangers would not let us.

Here’s some striking pictures of the Hindman (our sister company) truck parked in front of the arch!

Foster Love Project and Don Farr Moving

Don Farr Moving & Storage was recently involved in a wonderful mission for Foster Love Project. The task of Foster Love Project is to provide placement bags for children that are entering into foster care. The bags include pajamas, blankets, stuffed animals, toothbrushes and other necessities that make the transition a bit easier for the children.

In 2014, Foster Love Project was able to collect 1,345 bags worth an estimated value of $54,000!

When all the bags were collected, Don Farr Moving provided a truck and transportation to help deliver the bags. Some of the foster agency recipients included the Bair Foundation, Auberle, Three Rivers Adoption Council, Every Child, Inc., Bethany Christian Services, Family Pathways and the Beaver County Child & Youth Services. All of these wonderful agencies help children in foster care every single day. Don Farr Moving & Storage was honored to be a part of this wonderful project and organization. Don Farr collected bags from Pittsburgh Lending Library and Playspace and from a local group Pittsburgh Momtourage, which was founded in 2009.

While this isn’t technically a “Tale from the Road”, we here at Don Farr wanted to share this story and help bring more awareness to this wonderful cause that was right in our own backyard here in the Pittsburgh region. Thank you so much to Foster Love project. If you are interested and would like to find out more, or how to help donate, you can email Kelly Hughes at Pghmoms@live.com.

Amusement Park

Chris and Butch visited a really cool place in Acton, California yesterday where we were contracted to relocate some items to Hillsborough, OH.

The place was an amusement park with many buildings and even a Ferris wheel! Butch sent us the attached photos for everyone to check out. The crew will be in California for a couple more days before heading out to Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Arkansas.

IMAG0140 IMAG0145Ultimately, they will end up back with us here in Pennsylvania but they will make sure to drop off the items from the park in California to their new home in Ohio!

If you have a last minute move coming from the west coast to the east coast give us a call at 1-800-DF-MOVES. We can have Chris and Butch stop by and tell you about all of their Tales from the Road!

So what that means to you is if we have a truck already there or going somewhere you may want to move we can offer you savings!

Another reason to check out our blog is we will constantly be posting specials and deals on moving! Occasionally we will be offering free items as well as special rates to certain cities! So whether you’re moving locally in Pennsylvania or long distance we will be posting some great deals!

Finally we hope to use our blog to share the adventures of Don Farr Moving and tales from the road! Our guys and our office are always hearing and seeing some pretty cool things! We always said here that we could make a really good show for cable television but in the meantime we hope to use our blog as a way to share these tales with our customers!
