Thomasville Helps Oklahoma Tornado Victims

ST. LOUIS, Mo.-Thomasville Furniture has teamed up with its logistics partner Armstrong Relocation & Companies to help Feed The Children bring furniture to those recently impacted by the tornado damage in Oklahoma.

After devastating tornados hit Oklahoma twice in May, Thomasville and Armstrong chose Feed The Children, headquartered in Oklahoma City, Okla., to distribute the donated furniture. Today, more than 20 trucks are loaded with Thomasville furniture and are on their way to match up with more than 4,000 families in the affected area.

"We are glad to assist in whatever way we can for those who have lost so much," said Lisa Hanly, vice president of corporate communications for Furniture Brands. "Helping families refurnish their homes is something Thomasville Furniture is extremely proud to be a part of."
