Mealey's Furniture Makes Late Christmas Delivery

Furniture World News on

For the past five years, Mealey’s Furniture has invited Delaware Valley residents to nominate a special deserving family to receive a free houseful of furniture, to honor the spirit of the holiday season. Nearly 500 letters, emails and nomination forms were delivered to Mealey’s three stores in December. “The needs in the community are so great,” said Dan Mealey, co-president of the company. “This is a chance for us and others to honor the spirit of the holidays.” A single mom and her five children, who have lived at the Red Cross Shelter in Levittown for the past year after losing their home last Christmas 2003, are celebrating the new year in a new home with a free houseful of furniture from Mealey’s Furniture. In the store earlier this week, the mom selected three complete rooms of new furniture: a bedroom set with queen-size bed, headboard/footboard, chest of drawers, dresser with mirror, and nightstand; a dining room table, six chairs, china buffet and hutch, all in light ash wood; and living room furniture – a taupe microfiber sectional sofa with chaise, round cocktail table and two end tables. The family was nominated by teachers from Mary Devine Elementary in Croydon -- 4th grade teachers Heather Foster and Sheryl Cohen, 5th grade teachers John Branton and Bobbi Green, and principal Joe Trachy -- where several of the children attend school. The teachers will all be present for the furniture delivery. Although the family was notified of their big win on Christmas Eve, they weren’t able to select and take delivery of the furniture until now.
