Mod Mom project to benefit children with special needs
May 26, 2015,
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz.— Mod Mom’s Kiersten Hathcock is strapping on her tool belt to help kids with special needs.
Hathcock, CEO for Mod Mom Furniture, is designing and producing limited edition kids’ furniture to benefit Sunshine on a Ranney Day, an Atlanta-based nonprofit that provides home renovations for kids with severe medical or physical challenges.
CEO Kiersten Hathcock said the company is creating limited edition furniture to support Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a charity that organizes renovation projects for children with medical or physical challenges.
"We thought this was the perfect time to get back to Mod Mom’s roots,” Hathcock said. “I’m really looking forward to getting my hands dirty again and building handmade heirloom-quality furniture for a limited time.”
Hathcock said the company is in the process of transitioning to a new manufacturer, offering the team the opportunity of a brief workshop stint. The new manufacturer will improve the company’s production process once the transition is complete, according to Hathcock.
“Why not pick up a hammer again and make it happen the way we know best for the month of June?” she said. “And while we’re at it, we can help support a charity dear to my heart.”
The limited edition pieces will offer custom options such as color and personalized name at discounted prices with a portion of the proceeds going to charity. Each piece will be numbered and signed by Hathcock.
Popular designs such as The Owyn Toy Box, The Bertie Toy Box and The Maude Toy Box are available on modmomfurniture.com. In addition to offering current designs, Mod Mom is also launching a new design called Charly, alongside several special surprise designs.
The Charly toybox and book cubby is handmade in Ohio by Mod Mom Furniture.
