Lonely Chairs Want To Do More
For Immediate Release Press Inquiries
LONELY CHAIR SAYS “I WANT TO DO MORE THAN SIT AROUND ALL DAY – LET FURNITURE SHAREHOUSE GIVE YOUR OLD FURNITURE A NEW LIFE”
WHITE PLAINS, NY – July 10, 2015 – Furniture Sharehouse announced today that it is launching a unique awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the thousands of Westchester residents who don’t have a bed to sleep on, a table to eat at, or a dresser to store clothes in.
“Lonely Chair” is the name of the campaign which features single chairs in local places of business, libraries and farmer’s markets. A sign on the chair directs people to the organization’s website www.furnituresharehouse.org, where they can learn more about the items needed, volunteer opportunities, and other ways they can help.
Donated furniture is distributed to the individuals and families in need through over 25 member agencies, which refer pre-qualified clients to Furniture Sharehouse to select much-needed free furniture. Member agencies include: Westhab Inc., Human Development Services of Westchester, Hope’s Door, Family Services of Westchester, Washingtonville Housing Alliance and The Guidance Center.
The campaign will bring awareness to the plight of these Westchester families who lack basic household furniture and furnishings and also to Furniture Sharehouse which serves over a dozen individuals and families each week. Partnering with local establishments will help spread the word organically and allow Furniture Sharehouse to dedicate its resources to its cause. Furniture Sharehouse relies on Westchester residents and business to fund its operation by donating funds, goods and services so it can provide furniture directly to its clients at no cost.
Furniture Sharehouse is counting on this campaign to drive needed donations of beds, tables, chairs and dressers so they can continue their mission to help make a house a home for those in need.
