We’ve completed another annual cycle of giving. I’m always curious how many of our patio sets we donate to charity events across the region, so I track them from October 1 to September 30.
2014-2015 was a record-breaker as we donated to 178 charities. For the 2015-2016 year ending today, we crushed that. We gave our patio sets to 260 different benefits and raffles! The retail value of those products exceeded $65,000!
Even though our year of tracking our donations has ended, the giving doesn’t stop. We just keep on going. We love to give to the community, with a special emphasis on local events and fundraisers that help smaller organizations like churches, non-profits, scout troops and, especially, families that are in great need in times of health issues and other crises.
Our bistro and patio sets make great raffle and door prizes and can help the organizers bring in some big money.
So, don’t hesitate to ask for product. It’s the least we can do to help local organizations and families succeed in trying times and a trying economy.
