Warren-based Art Van Furniture has debuted its new campaign, “Inspiration Lives Here.” The campaign is designed to celebrate the power of inspiration while recognizing grassroots initiatives and community leaders across the Midwest.
“Inspiration is everywhere; in our own homes, at our workplaces, and in our community,” says David Van Elslander, community spokesperson for Art Van Furniture and son of founder Art Van Elslander. “It’s the small acts of kindness that make such a big difference, like lending a hand, eliciting a smile, or donating one’s time. We hear stories every day in our showrooms about wonderful people, and this is our way of thanking them.”
Community leaders include unsung heroes who uplift their communities with simple acts of kindness and selfless displays of courage.
As a part of the campaign, shoppers are encouraged to nominate individuals who are positively influencing their communities through words or deeds. Each of the 77 Art Van locations in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, and Iowa will award each winner with $1,000. In addition, the recipients will have a chance to win one of six $5,000 home makeovers.
“Our customers have inspired us to give our best for six decades,” says Gary Fazio, CEO of Art Van Furniture. “We give them the best shopping experience and products in our stores, and we give our best to their communities through our meaningful, impactful charitable initiatives.”
Nominations can be submitted through Oct. 14. For the entry forms and more information, click here.
