Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County Receives Donation of a Broad Range of New Furniture and Accessories from Local Ethan Allen Design Centers

Ethan Allen, as part of its ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, has donated a range of new home goods to Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County for resale in their three local Habitat for Humanity ReStores in East Boca Raton, West Boca Raton and Delray Beach.

Last year, Ethan Allen donated close to 4,000 products to Habitat ReStores across the U.S. and Canada. This year’s additional donations should bring estimated total donations to 48,000 with a total estimated retail value of more than $19 million. “Creating happy homes is what we do best,” said Gary Mair, Design Center Manager at Ethan Allen’s Boca Raton Design Center. “We’re thrilled to help families achieve their dreams of homeownership, and we’re proud to support Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County’s work in our community.”

Proceeds from the sale of products, which include a broad range of furniture and accessories, including quality living room furniture, dining room furniture, bedroom furniture and home décor from classic to contemporary, will assist Habitat in its mission to help families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

“We are grateful for Ethan Allen’s partnership,” said Randy Nobles, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County. “ReStore proceeds from the sale of this new furniture is what supports Habitat’s mission of partnership housing that gives families a ‘hand-up, not a hand-out’ as they achieve the ‘American Dream’ of homeownership.”

Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County Chief Development Officer Kari Oeltjen shared it is a great partnership because “Ethan Allen builds quality furniture to last generations, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County builds homes to do the same.”

To give a “hand-up, never a hand-out” the HFHSPBC nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization brings people together to build homes, community and hope in the cities of Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, Florida.
