VESTAL, N.Y., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Olum's, a furniture retailer providing Central New York and the Southern Tier with a diverse selection of home furnishing products since 1914, will be donating a portion of Natura bedding sales to a local, community-health-based nonprofit organization in celebration of World Health Day, which is observed on Friday, April 7. Donations will be given from Olum's North Syracuse and Vestal locations beginning Thursday, April 6 and ending Saturday, April 15.
World Health Day takes place on April 7 each year – the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO). This date not only offers a chance to honor health-related nonprofits, but to shine a light on a particular health topic of importance. This year's topic is depression, a psychological disorder that affects more than 300 million people across the world, according to the WHO. Olum's is honored to use World Health Day as an opportunity to spotlight local health issues and charities that help deal with depressive disorders.
For decades, Olum's has played an integral role in the area's economy, participating in a variety of charitable events and providing an assortment of similar donations – aimed at recipients such as Toys For Tots and the Onondaga County Sherriff's Office – in order to give back to the community that has offered its continual support throughout the years. This donation continues Olum's trend of community-focused giving.
Natura, the primary brand around which the promotion is targeted, specializes in crafting bedding products, ranging from mattresses to bed toppers, constructed of natural and organic materials in order to help deliver irritation-free rest each and every night.
Olum's has loyally supplied communities in CNY and the Southern Tier with furniture, mattresses, appliances and home furnishings for over 100 years. Visit www.olums.com or call 1-800-964-5690 to learn more.
