Military Vet and Family Gifted Furnishings
Bassett Furniture Donates to Goodrich Family of Dumfries, Va.
Sterling/Dulles, VA - 7/14/2016
As part of the grand opening of its Sterling, Va. store, Bassett Furniture had the privilege of unloading a delivery truck filled with nearly $10,000 worth of donated furniture, in partnership with the Freedom Alliance, an educational and charitable organization which sponsors numerous program activities aimed at supporting and honoring military service members and their families. With the help of the organization, Bassett Furniture selected Special Operations Team Sgt. Timothy Goodrich and his family of Dumfries, Va. as the perfect recipient for the upcoming donation. Goodrich was wounded in combat in Afghanistan in 2012 and was medically evacuated out of the country as he suffered a brain injury and other major shrapnel wounds that required numerous surgeries. Because of his injuries and extensive medical care, Goodrich and his wife have never owned bedroom furniture which is where Bassett Furniture stepped in to help redesign and furnish the space. The donation kicked off the grand opening for Bassett's nearby location in Sterling, VA.
