With the uncertainty that has surrounded us recently, some amazing small business owners have stepped up to help our community in whatever way they can. We want to recognize their efforts!
Today’s Hero – Bungii
Today we shine the spotlight on Bungii, a delivery service focused on same-day and on-demand shipping of large items. Typically, they deliver items like mattresses, couches, dining sets, patio sets, grills, and even loads of mulch, pine straw, or rocks, as well as other large household items. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been able to be a part of aiding the supply chain needs for both business partners and consumers who use their service. As a “shipping and delivery” company, they fall under the “Essential Business” provision and have been called upon to help deliver personal protective equipment from medical supply distributors, essential products, and shelf stable goods to local charities. They’ve even seen an increase in outdoor supplies and DIY materials for home improvement projects.
Bungii was able to utilize their delivery services to support the Center for Children and Young Adults (CCYA). Bungii purchased non-perishable goods like bottled water and toilet paper from our local Big Lots and delivered it to the CCYA in Marietta. CCYA was in critical need of these supplies and very grateful for the donation.
One of Bungii’s core values is “Do The Right Thing” which was exemplified in their decision to donate both supplies and their services to CCYA. As the demand increases, they hope to continue to be a positive resource for our communities during this trying time. Bungii has several partners in retailers located in the Town Center CID and beyond in Cobb County. Please continue to support your local businesses like Bungii who are going above and beyond to help our community.
