The Barnabas Network Announces Fall Furniture Auction;
Online Event Runs Thanksgiving Week
Greensboro, N.C. –The Barnabas Network, the Triad’s only nonprofit furniture bank, is pleased to announce its Fall Furniture Auction, featuring 200+ pieces of new and like-new furniture from local retailers. The online event begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21 and runs through 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28. To register for the auction, text “furniture” to 76278 or visit furniture.givesmart.com.
The weeklong event is the latest in a series of online auctions Barnabas launched earlier this year in place of its traditional in-person furniture sale. “When we took our fundraising model online back in the spring, we went into it not knowing what to expect, and in turn we’ve been absolutely blown away by the response,” said Executive Director Derrick Sides. “We’re excited. This auction is our biggest one yet.”
Warehouse Furniture Sale Fundraisers go Online!
The Barnabas Network has adapted and transformed its large in-person fundraisers into online events.
We're so grateful for all of you, volunteers and shoppers alike, who help make these events possible, and your health and safety are our top priority. When weighing the potential gain with the potential risk and looking at the extremely challenging logistics and uncertainty of when we might have an in-person event of this size and scale, we decided there has never been a better time for us to pivot and experiment with taking the sales online.
We still need all of you to help like and share posts, forward emails to spread the word, and most importantly, shop; because, at the end of the day, your purchase funds our operation. The one thing that hasn't changed and won't changes is that all the proceeds from these sales go to support The Barnabas Network and our efforts to Recycle Furniture and Restore Lives.
