ABOUT:  Bob’s Discount Furniture

Bob’s Discount Furniture, with 40 retail store locations throughout New England, New Jersey and New York, announces today, that during the month of February, Bob’s Outreach program, including the Random Acts of Kindness campaign, will take place in the great state of New York. Designed to give back to local education and communities, the program will continue throughout the year and reach each state in which Bob’s operates.

Bob’s customers can participate in the program, too.  In each Bob’s Discount Furniture store, containers located in the store cafés are available to collect donations. At the end of each month, Bob’s collects the donations and delivers them to randomly chosen schools in the area. Through its Bob’s Outreach efforts, Bob’s Discount Furniture has supported education in the communities surrounding each of its store locations with a special focus on children, as well as art and academic initiatives.

This month, Bob’s will also be making its yearly donation to the Pajama Program, an organization committed to providing warm pajamas and books to kids around the country, many of whom are waiting for a home.  Bob’s partnered with Dr. Kathy Reilly Fallon, founder of Heavenly Productions Foundation, to create 1,000 copies of a special Bob’s Discount Furniture edition of Heavenly Skies and Lullabies. This book, which includes a CD of the lullabies, was originally written by Dr. Fallon to comfort children affected by tragic events such as September 11th, Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti.
