Our pledge to support inclusive and diverse needs in our communities

Community has always been at the core of who we are at Bob’s. Since we opened our doors in 1991, we’ve looked for opportunities to make meaningful change and build brighter futures in the communities around our stores.

Our community mission focuses on creating safe places for children and families because we believe that no one should go a night without a roof over their head, a meal in their stomach or a sense of belonging.

Through our outreach programs, we embrace diversity and strive to create more equitable and inclusive communities, giving everyone the same access to opportunities. Through strategic sponsorships, donation programs and volunteerism, we leverage our resources to help reduce disparities, to embrace the dignity and equality of all people, and to strengthen the diverse needs of the communities we serve. Examples of the organizations we proudly support include local chapters of the National Urban League, The RiseUp Group, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP), CASA Central and Matthew Shepard Foundation.

We are proud to be a company that serves a diverse array of communities and proudly hires, develops and promotes people from all backgrounds. We know that change needs to happen on an ongoing basis and we continue to seek out more opportunities to make diversity a core part of how we grow as a company. We pledge to make Bob’s more inclusive for everyone – our customers, our associates, and the communities we serve.

About the author / Bob

I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
