CHAIR AFFAIR ARTISTS
Every spring, Community Warehouse hosts its annual Chair Affair event to raise critical mission funds.
At the heart of the event are brilliant, one-of-a-kind children’s chairs created by 40+ local artists. These chairs are displayed and “sponsored” by guests at the main Chair Affair event on April 21st, before they are returned to Community Warehouse to be picked out by children of families served.
Check out some fabulous photos here!

Children’s Chairs to refurbish will be available for pickup on two weekends: January 6/7 and January 13/14 at both our Portland and Tualatin locations between 10:30am and 4pm. Please drop by on either weekend to choose from our selection. Chairs are first-come first-serve. When you arrive, please ask a team member to show you where the children’s chairs are located.
Note: we have a decent supply of small chairs this year, but we appreciate any artists who are willing to find chairs at garage sales, thrift stores, or anywhere you please!

Children’s Chair Gallery
If these photos don’t make you smile, we’re not sure what will 🙂 Check out this wonderful gallery of images that capture children who took a small break (while picking out essential furnishings with their families) to select a very special, handcrafted chair to take home. What a surprise, and a delight!
