La-Z-Boy Furniture Donates 4 Chairs To Ronald McDonald House

Friday, June 7, 2013

The Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House just got more comfortable, thanks to a La-Z-Boy furniture donation on May 31, from the Chattanooga La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries store.  A total of four chairs were donated which will be used to reinvigorate the House Lobby and Great Room.  The newly-donated furnishings will create an even more comfortable atmosphere for the families of sick and injured children staying at the Ronald McDonald House. 

“The arrival of these new furniture pieces will help further our mission to provide a warm and welcoming interim home for families in need,” said Jane Kaylor, CEO of RMHC of Greater Chattanooga. “We are very grateful to have a community partner like La-Z-Boy that shares our dedication to comfort.”

La-Z-Boy is the official furniture provider of Ronald McDonald House programs and Ronald McDonald Family Room programs nationwide. The La-Z-Boy contribution to RMHC includes annual furniture donations, as well as a cash contribution and volunteer efforts.  Over the past three years this has added up to thousands of pieces of furniture, consisting of stationary and motion sofas, loveseats and sectionals, occasional tables and other wood furniture, as well as ottomans, accent chairs and, of course, recliners.
