After Thanksgiving, ConvenientMD Urgent Care helped launch an online campaign to purchase a van for Chase Home to transport their kids—a campaign that has recently attracted the attention and support from Allen Wayside Furniture.
Through Christmas Eve, anyone willing to donate $10 on their purchase of $500 or more at Allen Wayside Furniture will receive a $50 discount toward that purchase. Through Jan 15, anyone willing to donate $50 will receive a $200 discount toward their purchase of any Stressless recliner, office chair or sofa.
“Chase Home is a fantastic organization that supports a great cause,” said CEO Doug Abrams. “Many of the other organizations that we support happen to be larger organizations that receive support from all over—and as great as it feels to donate to or support a cause, it feels even better knowing that your support is directly benefiting those in need within your own community.”
Currently, Chase Home is approximately 60% toward its fundraising goal of $20,000. Founded in 1877, Chase Home meets the needs of youth and families in active crisis through residential and community-based services with an emerging emphasis on prevention and early-intervention.
“We are thrilled and humbled at the support from the local community,” said Chase Home Executive Meme Wheeler. “This year has been challenging with both our primary vehicles going down at the same time. We cannot thank Allen Wayside Furniture enough for joining this campaign.”
She also expressed gratitude to ConvenientMD Urgent Care for launching what has become known as “Wheels 4 Chase Home.”
“We value our partnership with Convenient MD,” she said. “We are so grateful they helped us kick this whole thing off.”
The Wheels 4 Chase Home campaign follows a successful prior campaign in which it received $26,000 from the Exeter Area New Car Dealers Association.
“We are just amazed at the support we have received this year,” added Wheeler. “This helps us achieve our mission, which is to meet the needs of youth and families in crisis. Reliable transportation is a critical piece to that.”
