Gus* Design Group Inc., the Toronto-based modern home furnishings manufacturer,announced the result of its “Keep On Giving!” promotion, which offered North American consumers a discount on modern furniture when they donated to local food banks in January. Gus* estimates that its participating retailers collected over 2500 pounds of food during the promotion.

During the month-long event, consumers that brought non-perishable food items into a participating Gus* retailer received 15% off the MSRP on Gus* Modern upholstery, dining, beds, storage, lighting, and accessories. Collected food and donations were distributed by the participating retailers to local food banks in their respective communities.

“The Gus* Keep On Giving Event is an opportunity to connect our business to our community”, said Jane Berry, owner of Gus* retailer Blueprint Home (www.blueprinthome.com) in Ottawa, Ontario. “We only ask for a modest food donation to receive the furniture discount, but taken together, the donations can go a long way toward supporting those in need. Hopefully the event gets people thinking about what they can do year-round to improve their communities.”

The Gus* Modern furniture collection is characterized by Mid-century inspired upholstery, dining, storage and accents which are in-stock and ready to ship in several fabric and finish options. All of the upholstery frames in the collection are produced with FSC-certified wood, in support of responsible forest management.
