Business ‘giving back’ this Christmas

Business ‘giving back’ this Christmas


A new business in Oliver is “giving back” to the community by donating an entire suite of furniture to a needy family this Christmas.
D&L’s new and used pawn shop is looking for nominations from people who know of a local family in need of a bedroom or living room suite.
“This is our way to say thank you to the community for supporting us,” said Lisa Ekelund.
She stated her and Dean would love to pull up to a house on December 15 with a truck load of furniture for a deserving family . . . just like the TV show, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
The Ekelunds have a number of items destined for the “giving back” program, such as a dining room table and chairs, and a couch. It could also include a television set and DVD player, Dean said.
Earlier this year Dean found out about a local family whose house burned down, so he donated items such as a couch and microwave oven.
People are asked to drop by D&L’s to fill out a nomination form before December 15.
