Conn's HomePlus, a specialty retailer of furniture, mattresses, home
appliances and consumer electronics, 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
HomePlus with the deserving recipients. Working directly with each family to
determine specific needs, Conn's HomePlus created a custom package to help the
families put the finishing touches on their refurbished homes. Members of the
Conn's HomePlus executive, corporate and local store teams, as well as
Rebuilding Together Houston and Entercom were present for the deliveries.
"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."

the 2017 Conn's Cares initiative launched to raise money for third-party
charitable organizations. Matching public donations, more than $500,000 in funds
and products were extended to local, community-based efforts to help residents
in the immediate wake of Hurricane Harvey.
