Furniture First Buying Group has announced that, in cooperation with Serta, it will be donating two trailers full of its private-label Mattress 1st product to flood victims in Texas. One trailer will go to Houston and the other to Beaumont, Texas.
In addition, Furniture First will be making a monetary donation that will benefit both of these storm ravaged areas. Furniture First has members in these communities and is supporting their efforts to aid in the recovery.
“We’ve seen our share of flooding in the south-central Pennsylvania area. Certainly nothing like they are experiencing in Texas, but the memories are still fresh in our area of when Hurricane Irene hit in 2011 and Sandy in 2012,” said Andrew Kauffman, CEO of Furniture First. “This is more than neighbor helping neighbor. It being able to give a small spark of hope to people who have truly lost everything. We are privileged to be able to help.”
Furniture First is a cooperative national home furnishings and mattress buying group with 472 store fronts in 47 states, collectively generating $2 billion in retail sales.
