COLMAR, Pa., Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Philadelphia-area businesses are teaming with two local charities to help families in need make a fresh start in 2017.
"We're excited to announce our partnership with Manna on Main Street and Laurel House, two fantastic organizations that are making a difference for people in need," says Steve Erdman, president of Leather Expressions in Colmar.
"By teaming with Steve and his store, we're able to have twice the impact for these charities by encouraging donations from both our customer bases," says Jim Fossile, president of Ed's TV, which shares a showroom with Leather Expressions in Colmar.
The Holiday Charity Event, now through January 16, encourages visitors to either retailer to make donations up to $500 to the charities. Donations are then rewarded with discounts of up to $500 on in-store purchases.
"There's no limit to how much money we can raise for these outstanding charities, so we're hoping for a big turnout. We're also giving away a Sony Big Screen TV to one lucky person, in time to watch the Big Game in a few weeks," says Erdman.
Why an event to benefit Manna on Main Street and Laurel House?
"Manna on Main Street (www.mannaonmain.org) is working to end hunger in the North Penn region by providing food, social services, and educational help. They have a very effective food pantry and soup kitchen, as well as financial aid and counseling," says Erdman.
"Laurel House (www.laurel-house.org) is committed to ending domestic violence in Montgomery County and beyond. We're proud to support their emergency shelter, hotline support, and education services," says Fossile.
Philadelphia-area residents in search of luxury leather furniture, big screen TVs, and high-end audio equipment can make a charitable donation in exchange for in-store savings, now through January 16, 2017 at the new combined location of Leather Expressions and Ed's TV at 927 Bethlehem Pike, Colmar, PA 18915. Phone 215-631-1500 for store hours and details.
