Paterson, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 29, 2015
Lois Landau Leeds, co-owner of W.L. Landau Ethan Allen furniture store (with locations in River Edge and Westchester, N.Y.) first learned about Eva’s Village when her husband, Andy, and she attended http://evasvillagebehindtheseams.tumblr.com/ the ["Behind the Seams” __title__ ] fashion show fundraiser for the non-profit in 2013. Each year since then, they have supported Eva’s Village via this fundraiser. This year they wanted to do more and asked if they could furnish a room for one of the programs at Eva’s Village.
Hope Residence at Eva’s Village houses both a shelter for women with children and a halfway house program for women with children. “The residence has been open since 2008 and the furniture in the community living spaces has taken years of wear and tear from literally hundreds of women and their children that have lived there," stated Marie Reger, executive director at Eva’s Village. “We were so please to have the Leeds offer their product and expertise in refurnishing one of its living rooms.”

About W. L. Landau Ethan Allen:
W.L. Landau is an authorized Ethan Allen retailer with a sister location serving Westchester County, NY. A second generation, family-owned-and-operated business, they have an award-winning 50-year association with Ethan Allen -- the 80-year-old iconic (and evolving) American brand.
Their founder, the late William Landau, was a furniture-retailing visionary and the company has for many years enjoyed a reputation as one of the top-selling independent Ethan Allen organization in the United States. William L. Landau is credited with revolutionizing retailing by displaying furniture in room settings, such as a fully decorated living room or bedroom. At the time, most furniture stores displayed furniture in rows of couches, tables or dressers, not arranged into showrooms.
About Eva’s Village:
Eva’s Village (http://www.evasvillage.org), originally a New Jersey soup kitchen, was founded in 1982 by Msgr. Vincent E. Puma in response to the increasing incidence of homelessness in his Paterson, NJ parish. But Msgr. Puma soon realized that a soup kitchen was not enough. With the generous support of thousands of donors and private and government grants, Eva's has grown to be the most respected anti-poverty program in New Jersey. Their mission is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, treat the addicted and provide medical and dental care to the poor with respect for the human dignity of each individual. Eva’s Village maintains a consistent “Four Star” (most preferred) rating by Charity Navigator, the “Online Guide to Intelligent Giving.”
