Community Outreach: Furnish A Future

Do Good With WoodMinwax® creates beautiful furniture for TV commercials, print ads and custom publications. Over the past several years, the company accumulated a truckload of tables, chairs, dressers, and more. On November 9th, the furniture was taken out of storage and delivered to the Furnish A Future warehouse in Brooklyn, N.Y. Members of the Minwax® marketing team and Furnish a Future volunteers were there to lend a hand.

That same day, Minwax® expert Bruce Johnson, led a wood finishing workshop for the volunteers and some individuals who've been helped by The Partnership. He demonstrated how to touch up furniture that has scratches and other minor damage. Additionally, the group learned how to stain and finish wood. Minwax® provided unfinished oak chests that the class finished with water-based stains in a variety of decorator colors. When they were done, the students had brand-new dressers to take home.
