The Malouf Foundation, the charitable arm of Malouf, officially launched Rooms Restored on Jan. 27 during its fifth biannual Forging Freedom event at Las Vegas Market. Through this new program, businesses, children’s advocacy centers and community members work together to renovate children’s bedrooms to remove the physical triggers of abuse and create a new space that supports the healing process.
“Over these past few years, it’s been humbling to see so many individuals and businesses join the fight against human trafficking and sexual exploitation,” said Sam Malouf, co-founder of the Malouf Foundation, during his Forging Freedom address. “We want to keep that momentum going with this initiative that aligns perfectly with our second primary focus, which is to provide comfort and care for abuse victims.”
The Malouf Foundation initiates the bedroom makeover process by connecting the participating business with a children’s advocacy organization in their area, who then finds a potential candidate. Afterward, the business can organize and perform the bedroom makeover according to the child’s specific needs.
Kelly Gunville, a buyer for Conlin’s Furniture, is ready to get her team involved with the Rooms Restored program and make an impact on children in need.
“Rooms Restored is a great opportunity to make a difference,” Gunville said. “We are starting in Sioux Falls, S.D. where the community is eager to help out and spread the word. Conlin’s Furniture is happy to partner with the Malouf Foundation on this life-changing cause.”
