In Support OfIlluminate Gives Back
Illuminate 2018 Gives Back to The Green Chair Project
Every year Vend Raleigh supports a local non-profit with funds raised through the support of businesses participation in the Swag Bag. This year we are proud to support The Green Chair Project.
The Green Chair Project’s Mission :
Working together to provide everyone the comforts of home.
We reuse donated household furnishings to renew lives of participants referred from area programs who are recovering after homelessness, crisis or disaster.
The Green Chair Project is a 501(c)(3) that provides home furnishings donated from our community for families and individuals who have transitioned from experiencing homelessness or disasters and have secured sustainable housing.
The reusable gifts are cleaned and repaired by volunteers and are presented in a way that promotes dignity and respect. For a small fee, families working with case managers from partnering agencies can select furniture, linens, cookware and accessories to outfit their new homes.
The Green Chair experience encourages families to prioritize and make choices and empowers them to create their surroundings and rebuild their lives.
