Furniture World News
Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture recently donated new furniture for the waiting and interview rooms of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Suffolk County (CAC). The CAC is an interagency public/private partnership dedicated to minimizing trauma to children and families when concerns of abuse and violence arise. The Center coordinates the services available to child abuse victims and each year more than 1,000 children and their caretakers visit the CAC to talk about difficult events in their lives.
The CAC recently moved into new expanded space at the Boston Family Justice Center on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. The new furniture will help make this space a friendlier and more welcoming environment for the children who use it.
“Bernie & Phyl’s cares about families in our community – including families and children that are in trouble and need help. We’re pleased that our furniture will help ease a stressful time for the people who come to the Children’s Advocacy Center,” said Bernie Rubin, co-founder and chairman of Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture.
