Merrick, Inc., is in Search of a Forklift.

June 1, 2020

As a non-profit organization, Merrick, Inc., uses contributions and revenue from our business operations to provide important life enrichment and employment supports for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

A crucial part of our business plan is to provide logistical support for business partners and our copy paper sales division. This requires some heavy equipment, including forklifts. Merrick has three forklifts, and at this point, two of the forklifts are inoperable and beyond repair.

I am reaching out to you, a fellow business leader to ask for your help in identifying a reliable source where we could obtain a used forklift (donated or at a reduced price). Do you have a forklift that you will be replacing soon? Do you know a business owner you could refer us to?

If you think you could help us, please contact Merrick Operations Director, Pat Hanson at or 651-789-6222.

Thanks for any leads you can provide!
