WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND…
There is nothing second-hand when it comes to helping someone in need and DirectBuy, the leading members-only showroom and design center, has the reputation in its communities for doing just that. To that end, DirectBuy of Providence, located in Warwick, is launching a “Nearly Perfect Non-Profit Donation Program” and seeking non-profit, 501(c)3 status, organizations in need of items such as furniture, appliances, fixtures and other household items.
DirectBuy helps its members save enormous amounts of money by enabling them to buy direct from the manufacturer. Occasionally, those items have slight imperfections and the manufacturer prefers not to do an exchange, leaving those items with DirectBuy. DirectBuy of Providence started the “Nearly Perfect Non-Profit Donation Program” so these items can be donated to non-profit organizations with qualified needs and a 501(c)3 status. These items may include headboards, china cabinets, sofas and any number of products or furniture.
That type of generosity is fairly standard for DirectBuy. Showroom owners nationwide 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 and children’s hospitals.
“There is something special about giving a very useful item that has been returned because of a little scratch or other slight defect to an organization that is helping others,” says Ngan Le, co-owner of DirectBuy of Providence in Warwick. “We’re looking forward to partnering with one or several non-profits in our community so we can make the ‘Nearly Perfect Non-Profit Program’ a win for everybody.”
Any non-profit organization in need of household items can simply visit DirectBuy of Providence Web site at http://www.directbuyprovidence.com/forms_documents.htm and click on the “Nearly Perfect Non-Profit Program” link. Groups will be asked to fill out a form and provide a wish list of what is needed and whether or not they will be able to pick the items up or need to have them delivered. In addition, the groups must provide proof of non-profit 501(c)3 status. Submissions must be mailed to DirectBuy of Providence, 222 Metro Center Blvd Suite 2, Warwick, RI 02886, Attn: Non Profit Program
