Conn’s Donates $18,000 in Furnishings and Appliances to Hurricane Harvey Victims

Houston, Tex.-based Conn’s Inc. (NASDAQ: CONN) has announced the donation, delivery and installation of nearly $18,000 in home furnishings and appliances to three families still recovering from last year’s Hurricane Harvey.

The donation to assist three Independence Heights families, which included $5,000 of product provided by Samsung, was facilitated through Conn's Cares, the retailer's charitable arm, which has given $500,000 to those affected by Harvey, after matching collected public funds.

Conn's HomePlus is committed to philanthropic initiatives in Houston, as more than 660 employees call the city home. "Conn's HomePlus believes in giving back, and the Conn's Cares program provides us with the opportunity to further connect with the communities we serve," said Norm Miller, CEO of Conn's HomePlus. "Houston has shown great strength and resilience following Harvey and we are proud to work alongside dedicated partners like Rebuilding Together Houston."

Rebuilding Together Houston, and broadcast entity, Entercom, connected Conn's with the deserving recipients. Working directly with each family to determine specific needs, the company created a custom package to help the families put the finishing touches on their refurbished homes.

"Community revitalization isn't just repairing homes. It's about making sure that families have the resources they need to begin to rebuild their lives," said Christine Holland, CEO of Rebuilding Together Houston. "We are so thankful for partners like Conn's HomePlus and Entercom and for stepping up and helping Independence Heights families put their homes back together after Harvey."
