Bob's Furnishes Habitat for Humanity Home
All of us at Bob's were thrilled to help fulfill a familiy's dreams by filling their Habitat for Humanity home with furniture. Watch before & after video below!
Most of us are familiar with Habitat for Humanity, and the thousands of homes its volunteers build and repair each year for families in need. What most people don’t realize is that when many families move into their new Habitat homes, they do so with little to no furnishings, including basics such as dishes, utensils, a dining room table, or even beds. That’s why it was the surprise of a lifetime for a Bridgeport Conn. family when they walked into their new Habitat home for the first time on Friday, Dec. 12, to find it fully furnished, and professionally decorated by nationally acclaimed interior designer – and Fairfield resident – Ronald P. Marshall.
Ron contacted Bob’s Discount Furniture’s Outreach Director, Cathy Poulin, who offered to donate the necessary furniture. Greenfield Hill Nursery also lent its support, offering to landscape the yard. It’s only a start, but both Marshall and Bob’s Discount Furniture hope to set an example of what’s possible when communities work together so that, one day, every Habitat family can walk into a fully furnished and professionally decorated home.
