Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Bel Furniture is a Texas-based, owned, and operated company that strives to give back to the communities they serve. Owing much of its success to hardworking families and individuals, Bel strives to support families in need as often as possible by contributing to local charities. Recently, Bel sent team members, including General Manager Coleman Callahan, to the San Antonio Food Bank to volunteer for four hours on March 20. The Bel team helped unload and store frozen food donated by charitable partners.
“Because we are locally owned and operated, our business would not survive without the support of our customers in San Antonio, Del Rio, Beaumont, and the Houston metro area,” says Mr. Coleman Callahan, General Manager at Bel Furniture’s corporate office. “Just as our customers give to us, we are dedicated to giving back to them and their communities.”
The San Antonio Food Bank, a reputable and well-run organization, provided over 48 million pounds of food in 2012 to children, individuals, and families in need. Bel Furniture is proud to support the Food Bank’s efforts in both Houston and San Antonio, where they plan to volunteer on a quarterly basis. Forty six percent of the households that receive support from the San Antonio Food Bank include at least one unemployed adult, and 67 percent survive on incomes below the Federal poverty level.
“Most of the families the Food Bank serves are struggling to find employment to provide for their children. The Bel family is honored to help those who are determined to help themselves,” says Mr. Callahan.
In addition to volunteering with the San Antonio Food Bank, the Bel family was also a recent sponsor of the 2013 International Festival of Fort Bend, a celebration of the diverse cultures present in the Fort Bend community. A Bel Sugar Land store manager and one other team member represented Bel Furniture at a special festival booth on March 24. Festival attendees were encouraged to register to win great prizes in honor of Bel’s anniversary. Prizes included a Disney cruise, a complete living room set, and a 51” Samsung 3D HDTV. A spin-the-wheel game rewarded Bel’s booth visitors with gift cards and discount coupons for future Bel Furniture purchases.
As Bel Furniture continues on its path of fast-paced growth, they will forever be proud to be a Houston-based company dedicated to high-quality, stylish, and affordable home furnishings. In addition to providing great products, Bel is dedicated to providing local families with the support they need. Bel’s customers are encouraged to visit their website, Facebook, and Twitter pages to learn about ongoing and current charity work.
