Supporting Our Schools initiative kicks off at Raymour & Flanigan

July 27, 2019 07:13 PM

HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Supporting Our Schools initiative rocked the Raymour & Flanigan showroom in Henrietta on Saturday.

The initiative is a joint effort by Raymour & Flanigan, The Boys and Girls Club of Rochester, and News10NBC to help provide supplies for local students.

"We want to alleviate the stressors that they may have in order to get to school and make sure they're on task and getting their work done," said Phillipa Wynter-Stuart, a program director for the Boys and Girls Club. "School supplies are one of the basic things they need. So being able to alleviate that for the families and for the kids, and the teachers as well who spend a lot of their money on school supplies, this will be a big benefit for them."

Saturday's event featured music, face painting, and other family activities while also taking donations.

If you weren't able to make it out to Saturday's event our drive goes until August 18 at all local Raymour & Flanigan locations.
