A testimonial from a satisfied recipient of our new community service- simple household tasks:
“Please let the King Farm Village board know how grateful I am for help in the process of donating my drop leaf table to Afghan refugees. I never could have moved the table down the stairs, out the front door, and into the car without your help.
The friend who drove the car was impressed that we have the ability to get help from KFNV when we need it. Thank you!”
Please feel free to avail yourself of this service as well as any of the following King Farm Neighbors Village’s (KFNV) community services:
