Supporting Today's Underprivileged For the Future
STUFF is an initiative started by David Cooper of Coopers Office Furniture in 1999 in an effort to do something for the community.

"It began by Coopers providing office furniture to registered not-for-profit charities. Through this David Cooper began to collect wish lists of what they needed; through business contacts, he learned what was available. And STUFF was born to act as broker. No money changes hands, but lots of merchandise now does - shoes, clothes, computers, office furniture, toiletries, appliances."
Most of this has spread by word of mouth. Now Cooper gets about five calls a day from companies looking to donate goods or services. -- "The alliances that we're making are businesses, but we're going to start going after whole sectors, possibly creating virtual inventories, getting businesses to discover who the not-for-profit businesses are".
