Rowe Fine Furniture, a leading manufacturer of custom upholstered furniture, recently announced their donation to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Roanoke, VA.
Exceeding a retail value of $26,000, Rowe Furniture delivered more than 86 pieces of upholstery to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore earlier this year. The ReStore maintains a massive 24,000 square-foot facility of home building and furnishing merchandise donated by local manufacturers. The items donated by Rowe will be sold to families in need as much as 50 percent below retail pricing.
“We are thrilled to be associated with an organization whose initiatives are making such a positive impact in the community”, says Stefanie Lucas, CEO of Rowe Furniture. “Everyone wants to be proud of their home. The Habitat ReStore unites local residents and businesses to provide families with the resources they need to enhance their homes.”
Rowe Furniture’s support of the ReStore affirms its dedication to corporate responsibility. In line with Rowe’s commitment to sustainability, donations to the ReStore have diverted approximately 2,700 tons of material from landfills drastically decreasing pollution in the region. The ReStore also provides a variety of employment and volunteer opportunities for local residents. Rowe hopes to continue its support of this cause.
