“We don’t want to just sell furniture. If we didn't give back to the communities that support us, we would be spiritually bankrupt.” Chad Spencer, CEO
Caring for Our Community With Every Purchase
Your community means a lot to you, and we think it's valuable, too. It's important that we show some love to the people and places where we live and work.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. – James 1:27
Every time you buy something at Stash, we donate $1.27 of each item purchased to a charitable organization that cares for those that need it.
We're inspired by James 1:27 in the Bible that lets us know that we should look after orphans and widows. Our Y127 program is our way of sharing our good fortune with people in need.
Here are some of the organizations we've had the joy of supporting through Y127:
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
We have been furnishing St. Jude Dream Homes every year since 2011. We have also been a partner of the Fed Ex St. Jude Classic Golf Tournament since 2010. We are committed to helping St. Jude find a cure for childhood cancer.
Local Family After Deadly Fire
After a fire completely destroyed their home and killed loving wife and mother of 5, Kari Coudriet, and 3 teenage house guests, Sharron, Joy, and Aaron Naik, on December 23, 2018, Stash Home stepped up to help. We provided the Coudriets with their choice of bedroom, living room, and dining room furniture so that they could have a fresh, worry-free beginning in their new home. Father and widower Danny Coudriet hand-delivered a heartfelt thank you note to Stash, expressing his appreciation. We’re honored to have made a difference in this wonderful family's life.
The Noyaa Association in Jamestown, Accra
In September 2018, Stash Home's Y127 teamed up with Kroger and Katina Rankin to help feed the kids of the Noyaa Association in Jamestown, a coastal community in Ghana's capital city, Accra. We gladly donated a $24,250 check to the association to provide nutrient-rich meals to kids ages 3 to 17 years old.
The 2018 NICU Reunion at North MS Medical Center Women's Hospital
We sponsored the NICU Reunion at North MS Medical Center Women's Hospital. This heart-warming event is an annual gathering during which patients throughout the years come back with their families and see the staff and meet other children that were also in the NICU. This year, the theme was "Super Heroes."
Furnishing The Mercy House
Stash Home was honored to donate furniture to The Mercy House in Memphis, TN. The Mercy House is a home where single mothers can stay while their kids are staying with families from Safe Families for Children. These single moms are vetted extensively to make sure they are self-starters that are ready to make real change in their life, and the lives of their children. They stay in the home for a few months while their children live with a Christian foster family. These women are educated to create good work ethic, budgeting, and best practices for home and family. A lot of these single moms were foster children themselves and they want to do everything possible to make sure their children don't end up in foster care.
Honduras Trip 2017
In 2017, we had the amazing pleasure of traveling to Honduras to visit the staff and children at Hogar di Ninos Enmanuel. At this orphanage sponsored through Y127, we provided beds for the children, a computer lab, and a nursery so the orphanage can receive babies, too.
The staff at Enmanuel let us know that right after we left for the States, the orphanage took in a baby – abandoned under a bridge. It's stories like this that touch our hearts and we are proud to share with you.
