Sleek, fresh, and contemporary finds its way into new homes within Furnish a Future
New York, NY (June 17, 2009) — Furnished Quarters donates gently used furniture to the only program in New York City that gives furniture, free of charge, to formerly homeless families. Over 1,600 items of furniture, electronics, and housewares were donated to Furnish a Future, a program run by The Partnership for the Homeless.
The owners of Furnished Quarters believe that in this tough economy, it is important to keep their commitment to community support, and decided to donate all gently used furniture from its corporate apartments to Furnish a Future. While Furnished Quarters continues to upgrade apartments, they want to ensure that someone benefits from this furniture.
"During tough times it is important to give back to the community. Many people are in trouble and it is our responsibility to give what we can to help families in need of basic home necessities," said Steve Brown, Co-founder and CEO of Furnished Quarters. "We pride ourselves on providing a home away from home for our clients and wish to apply the same philosophy to our charitable donations"
Furnished Quarters frequently upgrades their apartments to stay up-to-date with the style and design their clients have come to expect. The company plans to continue to donate to Furnish a Future.
