SuperNova Furniture Food For Friends

SuperNova Furniture is Helping to Feed Houston’s Hungry This Holiday Season with its “Food For Friends” Drive-thru Food Giveaway


Houston, TX: Many of our friends and neighbors are running out of financial resources with which to obtain the simplest necessity of life – healthy food. These are folks that we have spent time with in our communities, classmates that our children have played with in our backyards, and neighbors that we have prayed with in our respective places of worship over the years. We have shared in the extreme pleasure of watching our children participate in everything from school recitals to sport competitions together, and beamed with pride as we’ve watched them grow—not just me with my children, nor just you with yours... but “Us with Ours”. We did this as friends and neighbors in our respective communities. Well, many of these wonderful people that we have shared years of our lives with need us now, and we cannot allow this temporary setback caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to destroy these families!


In 2001, SuperNova collected and sent aid and “Rescue & Recovery Teams” to Santa Tecla/Las Colinas, El Salvador to help after a disastrous landslide inundated the town, killing hundreds. In 2013, we opened all of our stores and warehouses as collection sites and sent fleets of trucks with badly needed supplies to Piedras Negras, Mexico when the town was totally flooded. Throughout the years, when any storm, hurricane or flood hits Houston in a major way, Supernova Furniture has distributed thousands of mattresses to get families off of the cold, wet floors at night while they re-built. Now during this food crisis, SuperNova Furniture is ready to help again. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY we have opened ALL of our retail store locations (addresses below) as food collection sites for non-perishable items. In addition, Supernova Furniture will also be using our own financial resources to purchase food for at least 1,000 families (approximately 7,000 to 10,000 pounds of food) for our “Food For Friends” Drive-thru
       
Food Giveaway on Friday, December 11, 2020 starting at 1pm CT (and lasting until all of the food is handed out, no matter how late this has to go). The location of the food giveaway will be our Supernova Furniture Retail Store and Outlet Center, which is located at 10000 Northwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77092. We can and will do it alone if we have to but what a blessing it would be to have any support that we can find to both collect as much food as possible and to get the news of this event out to those who want to donate and to those who need help!
As mentioned, this will be a DRIVE-THRU food giveaway in order to keep everyone involved safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. We will set up an organized car line on Director’s Row St. next to our store where families can pull up to the food loading area in their car, open their trunk, and a member of the Supernova Furniture team or volunteer will place food inside their trunk for them to enjoy safely at home. There should be little to no direct human contact involved in the interaction so all involved will hopefully feel safe to participate in this effort.
