On March 9, Bassett Furniture donated nearly $10,000 worth of furnishings to completely make over the North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center’s Roslyn Heights headquarters waiting room, where children and families spend time while visiting.
“The room is absolutely beautiful,” said Andrew Malekoff, executive director of the Guidance Center. “It is a warm and comforting space, and it will make our visitors and clients feel welcomed and relaxed. It’s especially great for youngsters, who can play with all the toys and read books on the comfortable sofa. We are so grateful to the people at Bassett Furniture for choosing us as part of their Make(over) a Difference initiative, which shows that they care about the communities they serve.”
Anthony Lear, store manager of the Garden City Bassett Home Furnishings store added, “Bassett Furniture is incredibly proud to be a member of the Westbury community and is committed to supporting the businesses and organizations in this area. After learning about the positive impact the North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center has on children and families in this community, we knew we wanted to help this deserving organization. We were excited to donate nearly $10,000 worth of furniture and a room makeover to the waiting room of the Guidance Center, the first place a family visits when seeking help, to provide a comfortable and welcoming area for those who visit the center.”
