Aaron's Furnishes Home for Single MomNovember 7, 2012
The Warrick Dunn Charities Homes for the Holidays program aids single parents in need by providing the materials necessary for long-term stability and the provisions required to ensure that both parent and children can thrive educationally, socially and economically.
Throughout the years the program has assisted 118 single parents and 317 dependents in Atlanta, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Dallas, Tallahassee and Tampa. Aaron's has been a longtime supporter of Warrick Dunn Charities initiatives and began contributing the furnishings for the Homes for the Holidays program in 2003.
"It's so beautiful. The house, the furniture, it's the total package," said Cleo Williams, recipient of the Warrick Dunn Charities home with furnishings donated by Aaron's. "The kids are thrilled with their rooms, and we're all just so thankful to everyone involved for this wonderful surprise."
The contributions by Aaron's were made on behalf of ACORP, the Aaron's Community Outreach Program, which supports neighborhoods and communities across the country in which Aaron's stores are located. Among the list of donated items were full living and dining room sets and bedroom furniture for each of the bedrooms.
"Through the ACORP program, it is vital for Aaron's to acknowledge the communities who support us and, in turn, support them through initiatives like the Homes for the Holidays program, which was able to make this Thanksgiving a very special holiday for the Williams family," said Aaron's Vice President of North Eastern Operations Brock Roberts. "Aaron's strongly believes in giving back to our customers, especially during difficult economic times. In the midst of all the fallout from Sandy, it's uplifting to be a part of the process that is changing at least one east coast family's life for the better."
