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:

  • 17 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Wilkes-Barre, PA
  • 214 Luzerne Ave., West Pittston, PA
  • 320 W. 2nd St., Berwick, PA
  • First Presbyterian Church, 345 Market St., Bloomsburg, PA

  1. This is so amazing! I wish NJ was doing something like this. My daughter lost ALL of her furniture/bed due to the flood in my basement….praying a miracle will happen to get her room back to normal…

  2. This is a wonderful and generous gift to so many in need. Mr. Hager is to be admired and gratitude extended to him. My wish is that other companies would offer such aid to the devastated areas of upstate New York. I wish too that FEMA would provide trailers for those who no longer have a home to live in rather than saying they can find affordable housing in the area. No housing is affordable when your livelihood was swept away along with your home, farmland and livestock.

  3. I’m sorry to hear that, Christina. We will keep her in our prayers. Has she contacted her local Salvation Army to ask about available furniture? She can search by zip code on our home page:
