While DirectBuy has made it’s name by giving families the opportunity to buy directly from the manufacturer and save hundreds, even thousands, on home improvement projects, furniture, appliance and many other household items, it’s reputation for generosity also speaks for itself. A fine example of that is DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver’s recent donation of a washer/dryer to Servants Anonymous Society of Surrey.
The Servants Anonymous Society, founded ten years ago, was set up to help sexually exploited young women get their lives back on track by providing secure housing and teaching them life skills. Servants Anonymous’
ASK Centre for Learning is designed to provide each participant with an opportunity to learn the personal and occupational skills required to help them obtain and maintain employment, return to school, and/or raise their children on a full-time basis.
“The Servants Anonymous Society is doing phenomenal work with these young women, many of whom come from very troubled backgrounds,” Peter Ruetz, owner of DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver. “While the retail value of the washer/dryer we donated is about $1800, you really can’t put a dollar value on helping a person get their life back and that’s really what they do at Servants Anonymous.”
That type of generosity is fairly standard for DirectBuy. Showroom owners across North America donate to any number of organizations, and have shown a particular affinity for making contributions to children/family-oriented organizations like Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, children’s hospitals and the Salvation Army.
“One of the keys to helping these young women get their lives back on track is providing them with a safe and clean environment in which to learn life skills. Something as simple as being able to take care of your own laundry can go a long way towards that young woman standing up on her own two feet. DirectBuy’s generous donation will go a long way in helping us help these women,” said Kelly Ferguson, facilities manager at Servants Anonymous Society.
