Switch Up 2020

A New (Digital) Approach

Every year for the past 8 years Didriks and Local Root host a campaign to collect gently used kitchen and dinnerware to donate to a local non profit. While this year may be a little bit different, donations are needed now more than ever.

This November 10th, 2020 through December 10th, 2020, customers can participate in our Switch campaign and enjoy 15% off a purchase of $200 or more online or at Didriks and Local Root in Belmont and Newton Lower Falls. This is Didriks and Local Root's ninth annual Switch Up campaign and the seventh year partnering with Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts.

How to Participate

Purchase a Dinnerware Kit

Add a Home Starter Kit ($65 value) to your cart and automatically save 15% on your purchase of $200 or more. All proceeds and kits are donated directly to Furnishing Hope, who will distribute these kits to families transitioning out of homelessness.

Donate Directly

Gather gently used home goods and donate them directly to Furnishing Hope. Once your donation of 10 items or more has been received they will email you a promo code for 15% off a purchase of $200 or more.

A Note From Furnishing Hope

While the COVID 19 lockdown halted Furnishing Hope of Massachusetts, Inc.'s operations for a few months last spring, it did not slow down the number of families who needed our services. Since resuming operations in June we’ve been very busy as more families are struggling during this challenging time. Since June, we’ve made deliveries of furniture, bedding, kitchenware, bathroom supplies, toiletries, curtains, and lamps, to 35 families - making it possible for 44 parents and 72 children to settle into a place that finally feels like home.

We are so grateful to Didriks, Local Root, and their customers who are helping us to help families have a better chance as they work to rebuild their lives after homelessness. Because of their generosity, families who would have otherwise gone without will have pots and pans to cook with, dinnerware to eat and drink from, and much more. Thank you so much!
