What does Emmaus do?

Emmaus collects items that you no longer want or that are left behind in Bolton at Home properties so they can be re-used rather than thrown away.

These items are collected, checked, cleaned and tested before being offered by Emmaus at affordable prices in their Bolton store.

This partnership not only helps reduce items going into landfill but also supports Emmaus to provide low cost and affordable furniture packages to Bolton at Home customers.
