Home Furnishings Retailer Makes $1M Product Donation Commitment to Habitat for Humanity ReStores
Monday, October 10th, 2016
Online furnishings retailer ATGStores.com is renewing its commitment to Habitat for Humanity through a product donation with a retail value of $1 million, up from $500,000 last year, and products are already being shipped to Habitat for Humanity ReStores nationwide.
The new donation period runs from Sept. 1, 2016, to Aug. 31, 2017, and ATGStores.com has made 531 donations with a retail value of $119,721 to date.
“We’re very selective about what we donate to Habitat for Humanity,” said ATGStores.com purchasing and fulfillment director Donna Miller. “We process every donation individually to make sure ReStore locations receive items in good condition.”
This is the third year ATGStores.com has donated goods to Habitat ReStores as part of its All That’s Good Deeds philanthropy program, which the company began in 2014 with a focus in local volunteer and donation campaigns.
“We enjoy working with Habitat for Humanity here in our community, and we’re excited about the opportunity to broaden the scope of our philanthropic mission,” said ATGStores.com president Michelle Newbery. “We’re always looking for new ways to give back, and this gives us a chance to bring all that’s good to even more people.”
ATGStores.com currently supplies nine Habitat ReStores with donated furniture, lighting, hardware and more, with plans to donate to an additional 15 stores before the new donation period ends.
“Habitat for Humanity is grateful to continue its partnership with ATGStores.com,” said Mike Carscaddon, executive vice president of Administration and CFO, Habitat for Humanity International. “Because of this continued support, more families across the U.S. will have the opportunity to improve their lives and their communities.”
