CHAIRS for CHARITY is a unique auction of chairs for all occasions. Whimsical, Thematic, Fancy, Upholstered, Outdoor….Many of our chairs have been repurposed and given a new chance for a new home. Proceeds raised from this event will benefit the 'Homeless Endowment Fund.'
The Homeless Endowment Fund was established in 1991 by Realtors in Snohomish County to assist families and individuals in temporary shelters to move into a permanent housing arrangement by lending a portion of the security deposit. This fund, which is the only one of its’ kind in Snohomish County has been use by over 1000 families and individuals over the past 21 years and is needed more than ever in the current economic environment.
Our fund is a "hand up” for the individual or family that has been able to secure a job and are ready to move into permanent housing but are struggling to save the seemingly overwhelming amount , required for first, last and damage deposit.
The fund is available to applicants screened by Volunteers of America and deemed to be ready to take on the responsibility of managing their finances including the no interest loan from the Homeless Endowment Fund. We believe that this fund may be beneficial in many ways, as it frees up space in shelters as recipients move to a permanent housing situation and may well be the first step to home ownership in the future.
This event will help us replenish the fund and continue our goal to assist those making a positive effort to achieve self-sustained housing a reality.
Please help us by creating a chair, sponsoring a table of 8 for the event or becoming a sponsor for the event.
