Furniture for Flood Victims

Flood survivors in the Northeast are still struggling to get their lives back on track after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee passed through the region. But thanks to one generous Pennsylvania business owner, many folks will be able to furnish their homes again at no cost.

Frank J. Hager, the owner of seven La-Z-Boy furniture galleries in Northeast Pennsylvania is donating $200,000 worth of sofas, chairs, recliners, area rugs, tables and other items to those that lost their furniture in the August and September flooding. Hager is one of many area businesses chipping in to donate more than $1 million worth of money, goods and services to help struggling Pennsylvanians.

What a blessing community is during times of disaster!

The Salvation Army will disperse his donation based on an assessment of need. If you would like to apply for furniture, please visit one of four Salvation Army disaster assistance centers at the following locations:
