Family Friendly Furniture

 

Your sofa likely sees more traffic and activity than any other piece of furniture in your home. Whether movie night with the kids, date night with your significant other, a get-together with friends, or some quiet time all to yourself – the sofa is where much of life happens. It’s our go-to spot, so investing in a good one is worthwhile. 

 

But finding the perfect sofa isn’t easy, it takes time and thought. Before you invest, consider your needs. Some are universal – your sofa should be comfortable, have you ever tried sitting on an uncomfortable sofa? You’ll want it to look good in the room – we’re talking configuration, shape, texture, color, and style. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll need it to stand up to the rigors of daily life. Depending on your lifestyle, daily wear and tear on your sofa can mean different things. If you have kids, it’s crumbs, juice, milk, sticky mouths, greasy fingers, dirty feet – you name it, the sofa has seen it. If you have pets, you’re looking at paw prints, shedding, kibble, and treats. Even adults pose risks – spill some red wine or coffee and you’ve got a problem.

​In the summer of 2014, one of our staff members, Lauri Shaw lost her dear brother Mark Shaw to a tragic suicide. When our president, Bob Gray asked her if there was anything he or Smitty's could do to help, Lauri replied, "Have a fundraising event in support of mental illness and suicide prevention...and let's have it in May during Mental Health Awareness Month." And that was it, the seed was planted and the planning began.

 

Mental health is an important issue in families all around the world. At Smitty’s, we know that it impacts people’s lives in our region every day. Since 2014, we have raised $20,000 to support mental health initiatives, and we are proud to continue this annual event in 2017.

 

3rd Annual Fundraiser for Suicide Prevention

 

Throughout the month of May, Smitty’s will be hosting the My Home Matters, My Life Matters fundraising event to raise funds to support mental health in our region, and beyond. If you purchase specially selected, donated furniture, you will benefit from reduced retail prices and 100% of your purchase price will be donated to Mental Health.

 

In addition, from May 12-14, 2017, Smitty's will host a special annual event at both the Hanover and Kitchener Smitty’s locations. Smitty's will gift a portion of every sale to support mental health organizations and programs.

 

Smitty's Fine Furniture is a family-owned company, and we believe that your home matters and your life matters. We are proud to support mental health in our community and beyond, and we are grateful for all your support.  


Smitty’s is proud to donate all of the funds raised to the Skills for Safer Living program, the Grey Bruce Mental Health – Hanover Branch, and Wes for Youth.
