The RoomPlace believes in the power of community. We’re honored to contribute to the neighborhoods surrounding our Chicago and Indianapolis furniture store locations to make our communities a better place. Here are a few of the projects we had the pleasure of being a part of so far this year:
Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans delivers housing and support to veterans and their families in the greater Wheaton area. The RoomPlace was happy to provide them with furnishings to make their facility feel like a safe, welcoming space for the people they serve. We sourced couches, tables, and bedroom sets from our Chicago furniture store so the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans can continue bringing their important vision to life. We are grateful for an opportunity to support our veterans.
Imagine that all of your home’s contents went up in flames. Now imagine that that happened mere hours before your wedding. For Andrew and Dayleen, this was a reality. The couple lost everything, but The RoomPlace helped them replace their belongings so they could focus on starting their new life together. We gave the couple a $5,000 gift certificate to get furnishings that made their space feel like home.
The Sertoma Centre is one of the most valuable members of our greater Chicago community. The nonprofit organization exists to “provide opportunities that empower individuals with disabilities to achieve personal success.” The RoomPlace helped them furnish residential homes which will give 61 valued members of the community somewhere safe and comfortable to sit and sleep. We’re grateful for all of the amazing work that The Sertoma Centre does for our community and feel honored that we were able to support their newest chapter of service!
Make-A-Wish Foundation makes a dream come true every 37 minutes in the USA. When The RoomPlace got wind of Evan O’Brien’s inspiring story, we wanted to help his wish come alive. In collaboration with other community members, we created an Ultimate Man Cave for him and his family to relax and unwind. From comfy sectionals to lighting, we brought the best living room furniture in Chicago to this special space.
The RoomPlace’s Community Care is dedicated to enriching our communities and collaborating with organizations who are working hard to improve the places that we call home. To explore what we’re doing to progressively enhance the lives of our customers, and the neighborhoods in which they live, learn more today.
