Gentle Giant Moving Company Customers Donate Over 30,000 Books to Non-Profit Social Enterprise More Than Words   By PRWEB

Boston (PRWEB) January 08, 2013

Gentle Giant Moving Company, an award winning moving and storage company based in Massachusetts with locations in nine additional states across the country, announced today that throughout 2013 they will continue encouraging their moving clients to donate unwanted used books to More Than Words, a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by working as a team to manage their own retail and online used book business, café, and community space.

Formed in 2004 to serve as a job training program for youth ages 16-21 who are either in the foster-care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school, More Than Words opened their original site at 376 Moody Street in Waltham, MA. Their second site, located at 242 East Berkeley Street in the South End, opened in November 2011, five months after Gentle Giant and More Than Words formed their partnership.

More Than Words is in a position to truly help a lot of young kids looking for positive future opportunities, explains Gentle Giant Founder and CEO Larry OToole. And Gentle Giant is in a unique position to help More Than Words, so this is a partnership we are excited to continue.
