March Is Red Cross Month
In 1943, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed March to be Red Cross Month. We at Mor Furniture join the larger community in honoring the Red Cross volunteer heroes who support our neighbors in times of crisis.
Every eight minutes the Red Cross meets a family who has lost everything. When disaster strikes, the American Red Cross is there to provide our communities with the shelter, food, water, and services, both medical and emotional, they so desperately need. That’s why Mor Furniture is getting involved. And it’s why we encourage you to get involved as well.
Mor Furniture VIP Weekend (March 16-17, 2019)
To help promote awareness of the critical work the Red Cross does in support of our communities, and to serve as a visual reminder for all of us to get involved, we will be giving away two Red Cross insulated 20oz thermal mugs FREE with any purchase (no minimum, limited to stock on hand, limit 1 set per household, while supplies last).
Our store associates will also be wearing touches of red in keeping with the spirit of the month and the mission of the Red Cross.
American Red Cross Giving Day: Be a Hero for Those in Need (March 27, 2019)
We encourage all of our customers, family and friends to be a hero for those in need by either becoming a Red Cross volunteer or making a financial donation. Your time or donation will help provide to thousands of families during the first devastating hours of a disaster.
The Shelter of Hope (May 1-8)
Mor Furniture is also proud to be a generous contributor to the 2019 Shelter of Hope fundraising campaign to take place from May 1-8 throughout San Diego, California. The Shelter of Hope is designed to drive awareness of the role the Red Cross plays in our communities. To put a spotlight on the need for emergency housing and other forms of support, the local Red Cross CEO Sean Mahoney will remain in a simulated shelter until the fundraising goal of $500,000 is met.
Mor Furniture has proudly contributed to this cause in support of our communities. We hope that you too will consider taking part as either a donor or volunteer. Learn more at redcross.org.
