Conn's HomePlus Helps Three Families Still Recovering from Hurricane Harvey

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."

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.
