Ethan Allen 'Lends a Hand' to Iowa's Homeless Youth$75K In Product To Furnish IHYC Facilities and Outreach Centers
DANBURY, Conn., Jun 23, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --(NYSE:ETH) Ethan
Allen proudly supports NBC 'Today' show weather anchor Al Roker,
whose ninth annual charitable trek across America to visit five
charities, in five states, in five days--will once again serve to "Lend a
Hand" to people in need.
Ethan Allen will contribute more than $75,000 in furniture and
accessories to the Iowa Homeless Youth Center (IHYC) and its outreach
centers. Ethan Allen Design Consultant Ashley Rothschild joined Mr.
Roker today for a surprise visit to the IHYC's
Buchanan Transitional Living Center in Des Moines, where the
announcement was made.
The tables, chairs, upholstered seating, beds and bedding, outdoor
furniture, artwork, and other decorative touches Ethan Allen included in
their donation will help to make the IHYC more comfortable and inviting
for both visitors and staff.
The IHYC offers a variety of programs and facilities that teach homeless
youth to live independently and become self-sufficient. The youth they
serve are non-system involved, meaning that they are not placed or
directly supported by a governmental payment agency. IHYC is often a
last resort for older runaways and homeless youth who find themselves
without community resources or the help of family or friends.
"Ethan Allen is all about making people feel at home, and we want
everyone to feel that home is their haven," said Nora Murphy, Ethan
Allen's Executive Vice President of Style. "We're grateful that our
relationship with Mr. Roker and 'Lend a Hand' has given us the chance to
assist the IHYC, and we applaud their commitment to providing children
and families in Polk County with the keys to a promising future," added
