Jasper, IN – Indiana Furniture, a leader in the contract office furniture market, has contributed an estimated 300 pieces of furniture from its Jasper, Indiana manufacturing facilities to Jasper’s Habitat for Humanity. Habitat’s housing program uses an innovative model that relies on both donations from the community and “sweat equity” from the families who are selected as housing recipients.
“We’re thrilled about it,” said Habitat for Humanity Director Brandi Sendleweck. Habitat for Humanity maintains a year round ReStore in Jasper to support their ongoing efforts. However, in an effort to turn this generous donation around quickly, Habitat for Humanity will host an open house and the furniture will be priced to move. The donation consists of a combination of desks, credenzas, media cabinets, tables and chairs. “With this amount of furniture the sale will take place off site, but we’ve had the support of so many volunteers to pull this together quickly” stated Sendleweck.
Indiana Furniture President and CEO Bret Ackerman stated this contribution is a strong community statement as it will have major impact on affordable housing by supporting Habitat’s mission. “Indiana Furniture has a long history of giving back to the community where we live and work,” said Ackerman. “Our two cultures join perfectly in the work we do.”
“Indiana Furniture is a leader in so many ways and this is just another outstanding example of their enlightened approach to business,” said Sendleweck.
