Burlington Furniture Supports Sandy Relief EffortsNovember 19, 2012
Home furnishings retailer Burlington Furniture Co., Burlington, Vt., will donate 1 percent of sales from its Home for the Holidays Sale to Hurricane Sandy victims.
As many of the staff at Burlington Furniture Co. are originally from the Long Island, N.Y., area and still have family residing there, they know first hand the devastation that Sandy brought to the area.
"We are a company with a conscience and a dual bottom line" said Christine Kelsey, vice president. "The Sale runs through Christmas, and all ads will have in the banner: '1% of Sales will be donated to victims of Hurricane Sandy.' While one small store itself cannot make a big difference, the efforts of many can."
