HIGH POINT - A center built here to provide support for vulnerable infants, young children and their families received around $60,000 in furnishings donations from manufacturers.
Ameriwood, Calvin Klein, Hooker Furniture, Klaussner, Lexington Home Brands, Progressive Furniture, Sedge field Lamps and Troutman Chair furnished the foyer, a reception room for parents and four classrooms inside the Center for Children and Families.
The center, the second of its kind in North Carolina, will be operated through a joint partnership between the United Way of Greater High Point and UNC-Greensboro.
The donations were coordinated by Joe Carroll, retired publisher of Furniture/ Today. For his work, he was named the Jack and Marsha Slane Child Advocate of the Year at the UWGHP's annual meeting.
