Hank Browne, owner of Hank’s Furniture Inc., recently announced a donation of $20,000 to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The funds were raised through the Hank’s Fine Furniture Care, Love and Hope Campaign held during their September 2014 anniversary sale.
Hank’s asked people to submit stories about what “Care, Love and Hope” meant to them. Over 100 submissions were entered to win a girl’s or a boy’s bedroom set. The winners were Cassie Ross of Fayetteville and Kacey Wood of Jonesboro.
“This year it is our pleasure to give Arkansas Children’s Hospital, serving all of Arkansas, our gift of $20,000,” said Browne. “We are pleased to be a part of the funding effort to keep Arkansas Children’s Hospital on the cutting edge of scientific research to help continue their commitment to the well-being of seriously ill and injured children in our community.”
Twenty-two years ago, Hank’s Fine Furniture began donating a portion of the proceeds during their anniversary month sale to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. To date, the proceeds have totaled more than $555,000.
“Local children’s hospitals have been selected as one of our annual charitable commitments because we believe these hospitals impact the lives of children and families in the communities we serve,” says Browne. “We feel privileged to be working for such worthy organizations and causes.”
