Roseville La-Z-Boy Donates $3,000 to The Gathering Inn | Community Spirit
On behalf of the Roseville La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries showroom, local owners Jim and Liz Reego have announced a $3,000 donation to The Gathering Inn homeless shelter. The donation was the result of a special month-long promotion in October at the Roseville store located at 396 North Sunrise Blvd. (Sunrise & Eureka).
The Gathering Inn in Roseville recently re-opened on September 17, 2012, after a temporary closure due to a lack of funds. Serving local homeless by providing safe, overnight accommodations, The Gathering Inn also offers hope, dignity and a wide range of resources and services to individuals and families in need of temporary shelter.
“Our grandmothers were not well-to-do, but they were so generous in their communities,” said Liz Reego, co-owner of seven La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. “They taught us through their actions that it’s our responsibility to help those who have needs. We hope this donation motivates our customers, friends, neighbors and other business owners to follow suit and provide comfort to those who need it most this winter.”
The Reegos, long-time Placer County residents, have a long history of giving back to the community proudly supporting a number of local charities, community groups and children’s causes.
“We are very grateful to La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries for generously supporting The Gathering Inn and helping to raise awareness to our cause,” said Executive Director Suzi deFosset. “We rely on the generosity of our community and we appreciate that the Reegos and their staff are committed to helping homeless people to have a warm and clean place to stay at night. Also, we currently have a Business Challenge Matching Grant, which means this money will be matched dollar for dollar – effectively doubling the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries donation. Any business donating to us will double their donation!”
