KING’S in the Community
ALS Society of Manitoba
King`s Transfer is a proud supporter of the ALS Society of Manitoba. King’s is proud to be able to support them in their fundraising efforts, provide them with moving services and aide them with their charitable endeavors.
King`s Transfer accepts donations of dried and canned food stuffs from customers that we are moving and we drop them off at Winnipeg Harvest’s busy depot. Many customers that are moving long-distance leave behind cupboards-full of food items that won’t travel well or cannot be transported. These are gratefully accepted by those in the community that are in need.

King’s Transfer collects used furniture, clothing and appliances for RaY. RaY provides housing for youth, that are in need of support. King’s Transfer Van Lines is happy to collect household items, that are in clean & functional condition, from our local move customers. These items will be returned to our warehouse by our drivers and held for RaY’s use in the future.
