The community and local businesses came together to have a hugely successful linen drive to benefit a local charity, Furniture Assist. Due to their generosity, Furniture Assist will have enough linens to supply many families in need. This was the largest linen drive in Furniture Assist’s history.

We would like to thank Ron Bansky and Allstate Insurance at 502 E. Broad Street, Donna Perch and Coldwell Banker at 209 Central Avenue and Rory Chadwick and Midtown Authentic at 129 E. Broad Street for being drop-off locations for the Furniture Assist Linen Drive. We would like to thank Sarah Murphy and Grassi Associates Inc./Keeco for the new linens.

Furniture Assist is a local charity that takes donations from that those that have and distributes free of charge to about 25 needy families a week. Donations can be brought to Furniture Assist each Sunday from noon to 2:30 p.m. at 24 Commerce Street, Springfield, New Jersey.
