Sunnyland Patio Furniture Donates to Nonprofit Organization, Carry The Load
Dallas family-owned retailer gives nonprofit $4,000
DALLAS – July 12, 2017 – Sunnyland Patio Furniture donated $4,000 to Carry The Load, an organization which works to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day by connecting Americans to the sacrifices of our military, law enforcement, firefighters and rescue personnel.
“This is the second year we’ve had the privilege of giving to Carry The Load,” David Schweig, president of Sunnyland Patio Furniture, said. “One of the greatest advantages of being a small, family-owned business is that we can support our local community in very meaningful ways. We share our success bigheartedly, and we encourage our fellow neighbors to do the same.”
With the help of customers, Sunnyland raised funds during the store’s Memorial Day Sale in May. Customers were given the opportunity to donate $49 or more in lieu of paying the usual $99 delivery fee. Supporters came from Allen, Plano, Lewisville and Grapevine to participate. Some customers donated more than the suggested amount, with one customer from Colleyville donating a generous $200.
Sunnyland also accepts donations daily at its snack bar. Guests are encouraged to leave donations in exchange for refreshments while they browse the showroom. The sponsored organization changes quarterly allowing Sunnyland to give to a multitude of causes. Recently, Sunnyland donated its snack bar funds to Heroes for Children, an organization which advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children (0-22 years of age) battling cancer.
Sunnyland is also the newest recipient of the Home Furnishings Association Retailer of the Year Award. Consideration for the award was based in part on Sunnyland’s commitment to community involvement and philanthropy. Sunnyland has diligently worked the last 47 years to have a positive impact in the Dallas community with each year presenting new opportunities for sponsorships, fundraisers and donations.
Sunnyland Patio Furniture is the largest patio furniture store in North Texas with a 37,000 square foot showroom and over 75 outdoor furniture collections on display. With 47 years of outdoor furniture presence in Dallas, Sunnyland is the trusted, go-to store for North Texans families furnishing their outdoor space.
