Ashley HomeStore promotes Habitat for Humanity
Cliff Annicelli -- Furniture Today, October 16, 2013
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - City Furniture has opened its newest Ashley Furniture Home- Store showroom with a boost to help Palm Beach County's Habitat for Humanity build affordable homes.
At an Aug. 21 grand opening celebration for the showroom at 2101 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., City Furniture President Keith Koenig presented a $5,000 check to Brad Jankowski, the board chair for Palm Beach County's Habitat for Humanity.
City Furniture is the southeast and southwest Florida licensee for Ashley Furniture HomeStore. The donation represented a portion of the store's grand opening sales.
"We've built our business by bringing people fresh, inspiring ideas to create the home of their dreams," said Koenig. "As we add locations and jobs in Palm Beach County, it's great to help Habitat's hardworking families move closer to the goal of home ownership."
Jankowski said the donation will help with construction costs as 10 Habitat homes near completion at the Kennedy Estates II community in Jupiter, Fla.
"City Furniture's caring approach to people, communities and the environment make them a terrific partner," said Jankowski. "As our families work through the rigorous process of building their Habitat homes, we and they deeply appreciate the support."
