AMWAT Moving Warehousing Storage is in its seventh year of presenting the Junior League of Tallahassee’s signature event and largest fundraiser since 1973, the Whale of a Sale. The Whale of a Sale is actually the whale of all garage sales but, better. Most of the items are gently used merchandise sold at ridiculously low prices.
Planning for the Whale of a Sale takes quite a bit of logistics support. AMWAT Moving collects items year round via client and non-client donations. On request, the Junior League will provide the donor with a 501(C) 3 gift letter. AMWAT Moving stores these items and delivers them to the venue prior to the event. AMWAT also provides portable storage containers year round to the Junior League at the Junior League’s house for collection and storage purposes. Between AMWAT Moving and the Junior League, thousands of items are collected from gently use books, clothing, jewelry, appliances, toys, bikes, furnishings, etc. There is always something for everyone and super affordable.
The biggest reason AMWAT Moving supports the Junior League of Tallahassee is because we believe in their mission. AMWAT Moving is about supporting our local community and specifically, our most valuable resource, children. The Junior League of Tallahassee is a nonprofit organization of women committed to improving the lives of children and families in our community. The Junior League is an extraordinary organization for women who want to personally and professionally grow. It is an amazing experience for women to learn about volunteerism and leadership.
What makes the Junior League an effective organization is its ability to immediately and positively impact the community by making a clear difference in the lives of children and families. All proceeds from the Whale of a Sale are invested right back into the community through a variety of programs such as Operation Prom Dress – outfitting students from Gretchen Everhart School for Exceptional Students and local, deserving teens with prom attire; Kids Boutique – providing back-to-school clothes and supplies to children in need; educational and mentoring services to the Boys and Girls Club and so much more. Quite frankly the Junior League of Tallahassee feeds the souls of many from the volunteers to those who benefit from their efforts.
The Junior League of Tallahassee through its efforts has invested millions of dollars in our community to improve the lives of so many. AMWAT Moving Warehousing Storage loves and celebrates the Junior League of Tallahassee.
