FLINT — Thanksgiving will last a little longer this year, thanks to the annual Skaff Save & Share event taking place Nov. 23-26.
“The response from our Save & Share charity event the past two years has been overwhelming,” says Dick Skaff, Skaff Furniture-Carpet One President. “Thanks to the enthusiastic support from the community, we have been able to write checks totaling more than $50,000 to our participating charities.”
Once again, Skaff will be partnering with Carriage Town Ministries, Communities First, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and Whaley Children’s Center. Over the four-day period, 5% of each and every furniture and carpet purchase will go to assist these four outstanding organizations and the all-important work they do in our community.
Customers can choose the charity they would like to support, or, if they want, they can share their donation among all of them.
“As an incentive for people to stop by during the four-day event, we will be reducing prices in every department, so customers realize significant savings,” says Skaff. “Maybe it’s due to my competitive nature, but we’re doing all we can to make this year’s Save & Share celebration the biggest one ever. If we can accomplish our goal, it will do a lot of good for a lot of people in need throughout Genesee County and beyond!”
To help generate extra excitement, customers will also have the opportunity to win a Serta I-Comfort queen-size mattress set, a Best recliner, room-size carpet remnants and more.
“Our family is thankful for the loyalty and support we’ve received over our more than 100 years in business and Save & Share is just one way of giving back,” says Skaff. “We are offering outstanding values to our customers and a portion of the proceeds from every sale will stay right here in our area to help make a difference. It truly is a win-win for everyone!”
Skaff Furniture-Carpet One is family owned and has been in business in Genesee County since 1911. The 70,000 square-foot Skaff Warehouse/ Showrooms are located at 23-Expressway and Hill Road. — G.G.
