I’m happy to share some news with you about my Café Collections for a Cause program.
I recently announced the start of a new partnership with Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that serves America’s military families. Starting in the fourth quarter, Operation Homefront will be our newest Café Collections for a Cause recipient! That means that every customer donation made in Bob’s complementary Cafés from October through December will be matched by Bob’s Charitable Foundation and donated to Operation Homefront.
Additionally, the support from Bob’s Outreach Program will help fund other programs such as Holiday Meals For the Military (HMFM) and the Homes on the Homefront (HOTH) housing program.
We’ll make a really stellar team because I know how much both organizations want to help military families thrive in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect.
To kick-off the new partnership, we presented a check for $18,000 towards Operation Homefront’s Back-To-School-Brigade program which will be used to purchase and distribute much-needed school supplies and backpacks to military children in the Northeast as they return to school for the 2019-2020 school year
After receiving the donation John shared, “We are absolutely thrilled to begin our partnership with Bob’s Discount Furniture as their very generous support allows us to provide a wide range of highly valued programs to help our military families who are struggling to make ends meet. I know Bob’s entire team shares our unwavering commitment to giving those who have done so much for all of us the opportunity to thrive in the communities – OUR communities – they have worked so hard to protect.”
While John was thrilled to meet Mike and the Outreach team, I could tell it was really me that he was excited to see. But because I couldn’t attend the event in person, the two teams huddled around my statue in the Café for a great photo op!
