Sheely’s Charitable Event Raises $16K for Veterans’ Outreach

NORTH LIMA, Ohio – Sheely’s Furniture and Appliance’s first-quarter fundraising drive raised $16,035 for Veterans’ Outreach.

A check was presented to the organization Tuesday at Sheely’s North Lima location.

“Veterans’ Outreach fills such a crucial need in our community. Sheely’s was proud to support them with this fundraising drive,” said Jessica Smith, Sheely’s owner. “In our 70-plus years in business in the region, giving back to our community is always a priority for us. And who could be more worthy of our support than our brave service members and their families?”

During the fundraising event, which was held at both the North Lima and Aurora locations, Sheely’s provided matching funds for every donation received. It also incentivized customers to donate by providing a 7.5% discount on qualifying purchases.

“Sheely’s is continually devoted to the many needs in our community,” said Jeff Curry, Sheely’s general manager. “We want to thank everyone involved in this effort, including our wonderful customers and our amazing staff.”
