LAS VEGAS– Clients at The Shade Tree, a 24-hour accessible shelter designed to specifically meet the needs of women and children in crisis by providing safe shelter and life-changing services, are able to enjoy an upgraded common room this week thanks to the generosity of Ashley, the largest retail furniture store brand in North America. Ashley selected the local shelter to receive the furniture, the equivalent of three rooms, that was used for just two days by media and artists for the Academy of Country Music Awards, which took place in Las Vegas on March 7.
“The common room is the largest and most-used space at The Shade Tree – a place where we strive to provide a home-like environment in which our clients are able to relax,” said Linda Perez, CEO of The Shade Tree. “We cannot express in words how grateful we are to Ashley for donating this barely used, gorgeous furniture that will fill our common room. The quality is superb, matches perfectly and is as comfortable as it is functional – a significant upgrade that is appreciated by everyone at the shelter. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
According to Perez, the timing of the donation is ideal as the common room furniture, typically items that are donated after years of use, was due for replacement.
“Ashley is privileged to partner with The Shade Tree in support of women and children seeking stability and self-reliance in the Las Vegas community, ” said Kelly Davis, Senior Director of Marketing Strategy at Ashley. “Because we know how influential the power of home can be, we feel certain that this furniture donation will propel The Shade Tree on their mission to provide safe shelter and life changing services for every woman and child in need.”
