News & Events
On Sunday morning, January 4, 2015, Jordan’s Furniture hosted a private, specialized adoption event at Enchanted Ice, the indoor skating rink at Jordan’s Enchanted Village. The event was in partnership with the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) and its goal was to help find permanent homes through adoption for older children and sibling groups living in foster care. Over 200 guests came together to interact and get to know one another. In addition to the youth, guests included families looking to adopt and social workers. Families could get to know the youth during the activities and talk one-on-one with social workers about the adoption process. All guests also enjoyed a light breakfast, skating games, and activities.
Donates over 8,500 winter garments to area families
A long time supporter of the Coats For Kids Program with Anton's Cleaners, Jordan’s Furniture began collecting gently-used and like-new coats in early October 2014. Winter garments for all ages were gathered at all five Jordan’s locations, along with the Taunton Distribution Center. And after 3 long, cold months, Jordan’s generous customers delivered! Over 8,500 winter coats (8,738 to be exact) for all ages were collected by Jordan’s Furniture. Once cleaned (free of charge by Anton's Cleaners), coats are distributed through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners , including BU Medical Center Outreach Van Project, Catholic Charities, Community Giving Tree, Massachusetts Community Action Programs (MASSCAP), Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell, Middlesex Human Service Agency, Salvation Army, Taunton State Hospital, Wish Project and many more . “Jordan’s Furniture has supported Coats For Kids for a long time”, says Eliot Tatelman, Jordan’s President and CEO. “Each year, our wonderful customers hear the message and answer the call. I am continually amazed by the generosity of the people around us. To be able to contribute so many garments to families in our communities who are underserved is a great feeling.” Jordan’s Furniture is proud to be a significant contributor and partner with Coats For Kids, making the winter a bit warmer for many area families in-need.
