Boston -- Joss & Main kicked off a 28-day “Curate for a Cause” sales event, benefiting Habitat for Humanity, with a June volunteer building project in Lynn, Mass. supported by 15 employees.
The national Curate for a Cause sales event, taking place on JossandMain.com July 1 through July 29, 2014, will give five percent of purchases in the "Welcome Home" collection to the Habitat organization. The collection features a variety of furniture and home décor, including console tables, couches, dining room tables, chairs, rugs and lighting.
"Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live strikes a chord with Joss & Main’s culture and has motivated our employees to give back through an all-day volunteer event in our Boston community," said Paul Toms, general manager for Joss & Main. “At Joss & Main, we sell furnishings and décor that help transform a house into a home and create a positive and welcoming environment throughout. We’re pleased to give back and also motivate our shoppers to do the same as we make the dream of home ownership a reality for more people."
"Through this partnership, Joss & Main is sharing opportunities to create affordable housing across their entire organization, from employees to customers," said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, deputy director of Corporate, Foundation and Institutional Relations, Habitat for Humanity International . "These generous donations of labor and funds make the work of Habitat for Humanity possible. We are very grateful to the company and its employees and customers for this support."
