The owners of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries recently donated more than $10,000 in home furnishings to the Success Academy -- Juveniles At Risk (JAR) program, a non-profit organization in Sacramento that serves needy youth and young adults. JAR, established nearly 12 years ago as a resource for at-risk youth, recently opened two townhomes in Natomas to provide emancipated young men (ages 18-to-24) with transitional independent living. The recent donation by La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries included a sofa, sleeper sofa, rocker recliner, two occasional table sets, entertainment units, art, rugs, lamps and silk plants.
“We are grateful that our 30 years of success in the Sacramento area allows us to ‘give back’ to the community--especially to those who might need a little extra comfort,” said Liz Reego, co-owner of La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. “If living in a beautiful environment provides happiness, then it’s worth the effort.”
