Donation makes Teen Center look Grand

Teens have some brand-new, comfy accommodations in the Teen Center at the Boys & Girls Club in Waynesboro – thanks to Grand Home Furnishings.

Grand donated four new leather couches to the Teen Center at the East Main Street Club. Employees delivered and placed the couches in the Club on Friday, to applause from Club members.

The donation is part of a project to mark the company’s 100th year in business. In celebration, Grand is embarking on a series of community-service projects. “We want to thank people in the communities that have supported us,” said Colleen Price, the manager of the Waynesboro Grand Home Furnishings store.

Store employees voted to support the Boys & Girls Club, and Price and a group of employees visited the Club and saw the need for new furniture in the Teen Center. The donation of four leather couches with a retail value of $2,200 gives the Club something that is “more durable, more comfortable, and just looks good,” said Price.

“We’re glad to be able to do this. It is a privilege for us to be able to give back to the community in this way,” Price said.
