“Green Chair” collectors celebrate service day.

UPHA residents cleaned out attics and basements and donated literally thousands of pounds of household items May 28 to help many newly-housed families live in comfort and dignity.

An astonishing seven truckloads were donated in University Park and areas bordering UP. The charity “Green Chair” will make the furnishings, pillows, kitchen items, and linens available to folks transitioning out of homelessness.

May 28 was chosen for the “Green Chair” collection because it was Service Raleigh Day, and students from the NCSU School of Design lent their youth and energy to the process of lifting donations into the trucks.
