Woodstock Furniture helps storm victims in Hattiesburg

January 28, 2017

 

Woodstock Furniture in Meridian joins the relief effort, as families in Hattiesburg affected by last week’s tornado begin to recover.

 

“One of our manufacturers came to us and said, ‘We want to partner with Mattress Express and Woodstock Furniture to see what we can do to help with the relief effort.’  So, I thought about it and said what do we need, what can we do,” said the owner, David Honeycutt.  

 

The furniture company is donating furniture to children affected by the storm with the help of Christian Services, a non-profit organization in Hattiesburg. 

 

“A lot of people are donating canned goods and their hard labor and time to help with the relief effort.  But children need a place to sleep.  They need to get back to some sort of normalcy, hence the reason we’re trying to do this,” said Honeycutt.   

 

The company is also donating money. 

 

“With our Mattress Express location next door to Academy Sports in Hattiesburg, we have select models, that between now until the end of February, we are donating a percentage of sales back to Christian Services, to help them distribute as needed and help with the relief effort,” said Honeycutt.   

 

He added that the company is glad to give back. 

 

“Sometimes you do things because it’s the right thing to do.  It’s not always the easiest, but you do it because it’s the right thing to do.”
