“Our team began the search for a local charity partner as soon as we decided to make the Boston area our first U.S. home,” said Alex Fisher, CEO of Oak Furnitureland. “Room to Dream does such inspiring, important work, and we are proud to partner with them.”
As part of the planned makeover projects, Oak Furnitureland will help Room to Dream volunteer teams recreate bedrooms for six chronically ill children and their siblings in the greater Boston area. The Foundation’s goal is to create healthy, healing spaces for children who are sick and often homebound for long periods of time.
“A renovated bedroom helps children to be more independent and feel more comfortable in their space, and it can give them something positive to focus on during what are often difficult treatments, “ said Stefan Nathanson, Room to Dream president.
“Room to Dream is honored to partner with an organization that has the resources and reputation of Oak Furnitureland,” said Nathanson. “A fresh, updated space can be a real bright spot for children going through a difficult time, and Oak Furnitureland is the perfect fit with its commitment to style, durability and safety.”
