TAUNTON, Mass., May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jordan's Furniture, New England's premiere furniture business, is hosting the Walk/Run for Adoption 2016 on Sunday, May 22 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at their Taunton facility. This event will benefit the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE), a nonprofit organization whose mission it is to find a permanent place to call home for children and youth waiting in foster care.
You may know Jordan's Furniture for the fun and family oriented shopping experiences they offer at their stores. You may not know, however, that they also champion children in foster care who need adoptive homes, and often sponsor adoption events, together with MARE, throughout the year.
Eliot Tatelman, President and CEO of Jordan's Furniture, says, "How can we have kids without homes? To have a child in society going from house to house in foster care and not have a permanent place…that is unfair. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing better than coordinating events to help to create families."
Join the fun! The Walk/Run for Adoption will be held at Jordan's Furniture's Taunton facility, located at 450 Revolutionary Dr. East Taunton, MA. In addition to the timed 5K Race and relaxed walk, the fun-filled, family friendly event will feature games, prizes, food, music, crafts, balloon artistry, face painting, and more! Come meet Jordan's President/CEO Eliot Tatelman, who will welcome guests and kick-off the Walk, along with hundreds of families and supporters.
By participating in the Jordan's Furniture Walk/Run for Adoption you will help change a child's life by supporting MARE's work to recruit adoptive parents for children and youth in state care. Over 600 local children are currently growing up in foster care while waiting for adoption. MARE's programs to find adoptive families include Wednesday's Child, children's profiles in newspapers statewide, the Heart Gallery portrait exhibit of waiting children, and various Adoption Parties. Over the past 58 years, MARE has helped more than 7,000 children find adoptive homes.
