Helping With Furniture (http://www.hwfottawa.org) is a volunteer-run charitable organization that provides gently-used furniture and household goods to families and individuals in situations of hardship. Most of the families helped are referrals from social agencies. These families may have fled from conflict or life-threatening situations. Once a week, the organization collects the gently-used furniture and household items from donating residences, and delivers these items to the families in need.

HWF exists thanks to the generous people who donate their furniture to us, as well as those individuals who contribute financially to the organisation. As a Donor Relations Specialist, with the support of the Fundraising Director, you will be responsible for maintaining HWF's relationships with its primary supporters. The specialist will ensure that donors understand the impact of their contributions and truly appreciate what HWF is doing in their community, in order to expand our supporter base and strengthen existing relations.
