Wayfair.com Partners With New Jersey Habitat For Humanity Affiliates To Assist Communities Devastated By Hurricane Sandy

BOSTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wayfair.com, an online retailer of home furnishings, today announced a donation to two New Jersey Habitat for Humanity affiliates to directly assist communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Earlier this month, Wayfair.com delivered more than $50,000 worth of home furnishings and decor to Habitat ReStore resale outlets in coastal New Jersey. Funds from the sale of the products at Coastal Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Asbury Park and Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Toms River will directly support disaster response efforts and home re-builds in the region.

"We are delighted to contribute to the re-building efforts in coastal New Jersey where so many people are still in need of safe and affordable housing," said Niraj Shah, CEO and co-founder of Wayfair.com. "Wayfair.com strongly supports Habitat's mission and it is our hope that by donating home furnishings directly to Restores in the region, we will be able to help people get back on their feet following Hurricane Sandy."

Coastal Habitat in Asbury Park and Northern Ocean Habitat in Toms River have been working to address both the short-term and long-term need for safe and decent housing in the New Jersey communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Both affiliates have launched repair, rebuild and restore efforts in the region and plan to continue as long as necessary.  Wayfair.com's donation will directly impact repair and restoration of homes in Coastal Monmouth County and Northern Ocean County.

"Every penny raised from Wayfair.com's donation will directly reach families on the Jersey Shore impacted by Superstorm Sandy," said Richard Virgilio, board member for Coastal Habitat for Humanity, which serves the coastal communities of southern Monmouth County.  "We are dedicated to helping restore homes and lives at the shore, and we cannot do it without the support from companies such as Wayfair.com."

Donations provided by Wayfair.com will help Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity continue to provide simple, decent affordable housing in partnership with low-income families affected by Superstorm Sandy in the northern area of Ocean County. Projects will include new construction and home repair projects.

Wayfair.com launched a partnership with Habitat for Humanity International in July 2012, and has raised more than $100,000 to help build homes in partnership with low-income families in need of affordable housing. Through the donation of building materials and household goods, as well as financial support and volunteer mobilization, Wayfair.com is dedicated to advancing Habitat's work toward eliminating poverty housing and homelessness.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore resale outlets sell new and gently-used home improvement goods, furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances to the public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds are used by local Habitat for Humanity affiliates to help build and renovate more homes and communities.
