Salvation Army Thrift Stores Beneficiary of Corporate Samaritan easyhome Limited

    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - The Salvation Army National Recycling Operations
announced today that they are near completion of a substantial donation from
easyhome Ltd., of Edmonton, Alberta.
    easyhome Ltd., a North American leasing merchandiser, is a supplier of
furniture, appliances, and home electronics. The donation, to date, represents
over $300,000 of product from the corporation to be available immediately at
participating Thrift Stores across Canada. The total donation, which
represents a higher market value in the retail sector, is being made available
exclusively to The Salvation Army Thrift Stores at Thrift Store prices in
order to help raise proceeds for the charity.
    Although this effort has been in the works for several months, the timing
couldn't be better says Thrift Stores National Managing Director John Kershaw.
"The recent devastation to the financial markets has already shown a negative
impact to retailers everywhere; charitable retailers in particular whom are
dependent on donations may be the hardest hit in the months to come, and this
donation from easyhome Ltd. is a tremendous gift to our organization," said
    The Salvation Army National Recycling Operations extends sincere thanks
and appreciation to easyhome Ltd., for their generosity.
