Once again, Skaff customers and four local charities were big beneficiaries in the annual four-day Save & Share sale that took place at Skaff Nov. 29-Dec. 2. According to a recently released statement, the community’s response to the event was overwhelming.
“It was a four-day whirlwind,” says Skaff Furniture-Carpet One President, Dick Skaff. “We were busy when the doors opened on Friday morning and we were hopping right straight through until we closed on Monday evening. As a result, we’re thrilled to be writing checks totaling $18,500 to our participating charity partners.”
As in years past, 5 percent of each and every furniture and carpet purchase made over the Save & Share weekend went to Carriage Town Ministries, The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, Whaley’s Children’s Center, and Communities First, Inc.
Customers could choose the charity they would like to support, or, if they wanted, they could divide their donation between all four organizations.
“As an incentive for people to stop by during the four-day event, we went all out to make sure our customers realized significant savings in every department. It was important to us that we offered great values, which in turn would make a big impact for people in need,” says Skaff. “And the best part is all the money raised stays right here in our community!”
Skaff also expressed special thanks to the charity partners for their involvement. “They all do so much to make this a successful event. The support and enthusiasm they provide is truly amazing!”
