Offer: Weider 9300 Pro-exercise equipment (Canton (south west side)) - I no longer use the above mentioned exercise equipment and would like to give it away to someone in need. You will need the following instructions to put it back together. I disassembled it somewhat so I could bring up from my basement to the curb. Offer: Moving Boxes (Crescent Lake Rd/Hatchery Rd) - I moved recently and have a big stack of boxes, both Uhaul moving boxes and misc Amazon and Chewy boxes. I'll put them in the driveway for you. Offer: Sewing Machine (Hamburg) - Wards model 1970 sewing machine. I've had this machine for many years and it has only been used occasionally. It works, however it needs a good cleaning and/or oiling to run smoothly. For those of you wanting to make masks these days, this might be a good option for you. To be totally transparent: a number of years ago I had the machine professionally oiled, cleaned and tuned up because it had sat so long that it was not running well. They did a great job for me and got it back into shape. Not long ago I got the machine out and found the same thing had happened. I decided to try to oil it myself. I oiled what I could reach from the top of the machine. But when I went to take the bottom base plate off to reach the rest, I found that one of the 5-6 little screws was stripped. This must have happened during the professional cleaning I had done previously, but of course I hadn't noticed it because it was on the bottom of the machine. I was unable to get that screw out with my limited tools and knowledge of this kind of thing. I have since received a new machine as a gift. So I'm happy to pass this machine on to someone else who can use it. I know there must be someone out there who has the skills and tools to bring this machine back into good working order. If that's you, please contact me. I can leave the machine on my porch for a contactless pick up. I will wipe it down first, but of course you should also take precautions when picking it up.

Offer: Opinions on COVID-19 policy (SE of Ann Arbor) - > Freecycle ... asked local moderators to refocus local groups on crisis... > and to only allow items which are essential/basic necessities I disagree with this policy. Clearly people need to take precautions like maintaining social distance and sanitizing gifted items. But one size does not fit all, and it is not appropriate for moderators to mandate what can be given away! Items which may seem non-essential can play a significant role in allowing people to maintain their physical and emotional well-being during these difficult times. Picking up an item from someone's porch is probably lower risk than buying it from a store which requires waiting in line and interacting with a cashier. I hope others will speak up about this too, and that moderators will not try to restrict which items are allowed.
