Nothing Second-Hand About Giving: DirectBuy of Buffalo Donates Furniture and Fixtures to Buffalo's Delaware Avenue Baptist Church

DirectBuy of Buffalo donated imperfect furniture, fixtures and other items to the Delaware Avenue Baptist Church of Buffalo's benevolent fund.

Buffalo, NY, July 09, 2008 --( Over the years, DirectBuy has been recognized for giving families the opportunity to buy directly from the manufacturer and save hundreds, even thousands, on home improvement projects, furniture, appliance and many other household items. DirectBuy has also earned a reputation for its generosity in the communities they serve. A fine example of that is DirectBuy of Buffalo donating imperfect furniture, fixtures and other items to the Delaware Avenue Baptist Church of Buffalo's benevolent fund.

"It doesn't happen very often, but once in a while we'll accept a delivery for one of our members where there's an imperfection—a nick or scratch, wrong color, etc. Some manufacturers, rather than a straight exchange, will ship out a new item for the member and let us dispose of the damaged item. Some of these items are still in pretty good shape overall and certainly usable so we donate those items to the Delaware Avenue Church's benevolent fund," said Brian Cohen, owner of DirectBuy of Buffalo.

That type of generosity is fairly standard for DirectBuy. Showroom owners nationwide donate to any number of organizations, and have shown a particular affinity for making contributions to children/family-oriented organizations like Boys & Girls Club, YMCA and children's hospitals. Some of DirectBuy of Buffalo's donations to the Delaware Avenue Baptist Church's benevolent fund have included headboards, china cabinets, sofas and even shower stalls.

"DirectBuy's generosity to our church goes above and beyond the call of the standard donation," said Mike Robinson, pastor of Delaware Avenue Baptist Church. "The recipients of these items have largely been single parents and other members of our congregation and community going through difficult times. Even a piece that's slightly damaged or has a slight imperfection can be tremendously useful and a real boost to somebody who otherwise couldn't afford it."

Since 1971, DirectBuy has helped consumers enjoy enormous savings on home furnishings, home improvement items, entertainment and outdoor products, and accessories, by providing an avenue to purchase directly from the manufacturer. With three convenient locations in the area, DirectBuy offers consumers a comfortable, country-club setting, where they finally have the financial control of buying direct.
