Tahirih Justice Center receives furniture donations from Green Standards in San Francisco

How a More Welcoming Office Helps Tahirih Justice Center Help Immigrant Women and Girls

When a prominent bio-manufacturing company relocated its Bay Area headquarters to new fully furnished offices, it partnered with Green Standards to sustainably decommission the 300,000 square feet of space it was vacating. It was important to our client that their surplus furnishings would be kept in use and out of the landfill.

A Tangible Benefit for a Worthy Organization

Green Standards redistributed the surplus furniture to six local non-profits, including Tahirih Justice Center Bay Area. This organization provides free legal and social services to immigrant women and girls fleeing violence in California.

The furniture you donated will have a tangible impact on our work. It’s not only going to keep our staff safer and more comfortable in the workplace, but it’s also going to allow a lot of the survivors of torture and trauma that we work with to become comfortable in a space that otherwise would be pretty hard to get comfortable in. I hope that you know that your donations go beyond just helping the planet or being generous and is actually making people comfortable in an otherwise difficult time.

Morgan Weibel, Executive Director of Tahirih Justice Center Bay Area

Social Impact

Tahirih Bay Area were pleased to welcome gently used ergonomic chairs, tables, desks and additional seating to expand their offices for their growing staff.

Thank you Green Standards for helping Tahirih Justice Center with these wonderful furniture donations and for offering us access to desks and equipment that would otherwise be way to expensive for us to purchase as a non-profit.
