Gus Modern, Retail Partners Donate to Food BanksFebruary 6, 2013
Home furnishings vendor Gus Design Group's, “Keep On Giving!” promotion sent more than 2,500 pounds of food to local food banks.
During the month-long event, consumers that brought non-perishable food items into a participating Gus retailer received 15 percent off the MSRP on Gus Modern upholstery, dining, beds, storage, lighting, and accessories. Collected food and donations were distributed by the participating retailers to local food banks in their respective communities.
“The Gus Keep On Giving Event is an opportunity to connect our business to our community,” said Jane Berry, owner of Gus retailer Blueprint Home in Ottawa, Ontario. “We only ask for a modest food donation to receive the furniture discount, but taken together, the donations can go a long way toward supporting those in need. Hopefully the event gets people thinking about what they can do year-round to improve their communities.”
