Bassett's Afternoon of Service
June 4, 2014,
NEWTON, N.C.-Yesterday, Bassett Furniture donated labor and design consulting services along with tens of thousands of dollars worth of new furnishings to eight non-profit organizations.
The non-profit organizations, all within a 12-mile radius of Bassett's upholstery plant here, included a fire station, a school for children with special needs, a city park, a shelter for homeless youth, an emergency shelter for battered women, a rape crisis center, a women's resource center and a charity that provides transitional housing for homeless families.
The afternoon of service was a surprise to Bassett employees, 200 of whom were sent by CEO, Robert H. Spilman Jr., out into the surrounding community, along with large trucks loaded with new Bassett furniture.
