The Regeneration Station is donating a house full of furniture and décor to an Asheville family in need this holiday season.
“We know this time of year can be especially hard on families who have fallen on financial hardship, or perhaps lost their home and/or belongings in a fire or some other tragedy,” said Tyler Garrison, founder of the Regeneration Station and Junk Recyclers, of Asheville. “Our team wants to help make this Christmas season merry for one special family.”
The Regeneration Station is donating furniture to fill a two-bedroom house or apartment. It will also offer décor to make the space feel like a home. (Mattresses and linens not included.)
How it works
Friends and co-workers may nominate a family. A family can even nominate itself. Nominators and nominees may stop by the Regeneration Station at 26 Glendale Avenue to pick up and drop off an entry, they may e-mail their story to email@example.com or fill out a form on the website (http://skohl9.wix.com/holidayhouse).
Nominators must include the family’s name, phone and e-mail address, if applicable, as well as the names and ages of people in the immediate family. Then, they must share why the family is in need and what it would mean to them to have their home furnished this holiday season.
The deadline is December 31, 2014. The winner will be announced January 2, 2015. The family must be willing to have its name, story and photographs used in media and social media coverage.
About the Regeneration Station
If you ask different people to describe the Regeneration Station, you will get crazy, different answers. A mega thrift store. A big box of beautiful and unique furniture. An antiques mall. A Disneyland for adults. A shopper’s fantasyland. An “experience.” A dream come true. Words to describe the Regeneration Station are as eclectic as its offerings.
The Regeneration Station offers a wide variety of used furniture including early, primitive, mid-century modern and vintage antiques. There is furniture, antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing and accessories, and artwork. Visitors are invited to explore the many vendor/dealer booths as well as the Regeneration Station’s own inventory.
There is also upcycled treasure envisioned and created by The Regeneration Station’s team of craftspeople who believe that reclaimed wood or other materials still have beauty and value.
