    Sponsor a Children’s Chair

    Prior to Chair Affair, local artists transform castoff chairs into beautiful, creative works of art. Businesses and individuals are invited to sponsor children’s chairs for $500 each. 

    The chairs are displayed for Chair Affair guests to view and enjoy. After the event, the chairs return to our Warehouses, where children visiting the furniture bank with their family can pick out their very own decorated chair.

    This Chair Affair season, we sat down with CW Client Julie Kempke and her daughter, Addison, to talk about her family’s journey through homelessness into finding stable housing and creating a home. Julie shares what home means to her: love.

    Get the inside scoop on our 2023 Chair Affair Children’s Chairs artists’ process and a detailed explaination on why we cherish the childrens chair program. 

    Here at Community Warehouse, home means love – the love that we share, give and receive inside and outside of the four walls we call home.

    Chair Affair is so much fun for me. It really has touched my life in ways I can’t express, but mostly it lends credibility to my struggle to emerge as an artist (art school after 50 ain’t easy). PLUS, it’s all for Community Warehouse and the work that you do is important to our community.”
