Community Involvement For Miskelly Furniture, giving back to the community is a way of doing business. Each year the store donates thousands of dollars to help people in Mississippi.
Rug Giveaway And Classroom Giveaway
With school back in session, we wanted to show love to our local teachers with two teacher events. Our first event was a rug giveaway! With this event, Miskelly’s was able to donate a retail value of over $50k worth of rugs to our teachers! For our second event, we asked our community to nominate their favorite teacher. Hundreds of nominations poured in and three special teachers were chosen to receive furniture & accessories for their classrooms.
Season Of Giving
Each November and December, Miskelly solicits nominations from the public for families in need of furniture or bedding. Every week in December, about 20 families are surprised to receive furniture and bedding they desperately needed. Children no longer have to sleep on the floor, a family has a dining set where they were once sitting on crates, or a couple has a sofa when they couldn’t afford one.
Donate & Sleep Great
Miskelly Sleepstore and Mississippi Blood Services partnered to encourage blood donations during the pandemic. We advertised the promotion as Donate, Sleep Great! Blood donors were given a Sleepstore voucher to redeem for a free pillow, valued at $150. Donations increased dramatically during the two week event.
Toys For Tax
Miskelly rewarded customers who donated to The Salvation Army with discounts on their purchase. By Miskelly matching the donations of customers, we were able to donate $15,000 to less-fortunate children of Mississippi.
Front Line Heroes
The real heroes of the pandemic were the workers on the front lines – medical, first responders, utility workers, etc. Miskelly wanted to honor these people that went above and beyond the call of duty. We asked for nomination and were flooded! In the end, we awarded over 50 front line heroes with gifts, including shopping sprees, pillows and bedding.
