Bassett Furniture to Donate Nearly $10,000 Worth of Furniture to Non-profit Organization Serving Homeless Families in the Phoenix/Scottsdale Area

What:  Bassett Furniture will have the privilege of unloading a delivery truck filled with nearly $10,000 worth of donated furniture at the main office of Homeward Bound, a non-profit organization that provides pathways out of poverty for homeless families in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Bassett Furniture will be sprucing up Homeward Bound’s lobby and welcome area to provide a comfortable and welcoming space for the families who visit the office to apply for the organization’s housing program. Families come to Homeward Bound after living in their cars, hotels, or other shelters, and Bassett Furniture will be working with the organization to create a space where these families will feel at home as soon as they walk through the doors. Bassett Furniture selected Homeward Bound for this donation because of the positive impact the organization has on the local community. Homeward Bound serves over 130 homeless families every year, providing them with not just housing, but also an in-depth program that helps them get back their own two feet.

Who:    Homeward Bound staff; Bassett Furniture employees and executives

When:  Thursday, March 16, 2017. Delivery is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. with interviews and unloading photo/video opportunities to follow.

Where:  2302 West Colter Street, Phoenix, AZ 85015

Why:     This is Bassett’s nineteenth such donation and delivery since October 2013 and is part of the company’s Make(over) a Difference initiative that creates fresh living spaces for organizations that serve the communities in which Bassett operates. The Bassett Furniture store located at 15600 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85254 is celebrating the grand opening of its new store. Store hours are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday, and 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
For over 25 years, Homeward Bound has helped thousands of homeless men, women, and children get on a pathway out of poverty. In addition to affordable housing, the organization provides each family it serves with a specialized case manager to assist with budgeting, repairing credit, building life skills and more. In 2016, Homeward Bound served 147 adults and 263 children, with over 70% of its occupants graduating to permanent housing in 12-24 months.
