Mamaroneck Self Storage in Mamaroneck, N.Y., provided storage and studio display space this week for a special event celebrating Furniture Sharehouse, an organization that provides free furniture to economically disadvantaged individuals and families living in Westchester County, N.Y. Inventory from the charitable group, along with items donated by local home-furnishing vendors, will be used to create designer vignettes as part of the upcoming gala, “The Power of Ten: Celebrating 10 Years of Furnishing Families.” The vignettes will be featured as part of a silent auction, according to a press release.
Founded in 2007, Furniture Sharehouse has provided more than 54,000 pieces of free furniture to more than 10,000 individuals to fill empty apartments. The “Power of Ten” event will help raise funds to furnish homes for more families. The organization often assists individuals moving from homelessness, escaping domestic violence, struggling with poverty, and recovering from personal or natural disasters, the release stated.
The event will be held Oct. 28 at Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club.
Opened last October, Mamaroneck Self Storage features numerous green initiatives, including DOW Powerhouse Solar Shingles, which are a combination of roof shingles and a solar-panel system. The 40,000-square-foot facility also includes heat-recovery ventilators, a high-efficiency variable refrigerant flow cooling and heating system, and energy-efficient windows. Since opening, the company has hosted several community events, including workshops for homeowners.
Interior designers gather with committee members from Furniture Sharehouse and Mamaroneck Self Storage staff.
