When A Chair is More than a Chair

We love to get impact stories of how donations are being used in nonprofit communities. Not only does it help us when reaching out to our corporate donors, but it brings a smile to our face. Recently, one of our nonprofits, National Council of Jewish Charities, located in Brooklyn, NY, sent us a thank you note from one of their community members.

To many people, a chair is just a piece of furniture in their home that they take for granted. For this La-Z-Boy donation recipient, her new recliner was so much more and she wanted to express her thanks through a poem.

No Words Are Sufficient

This is a poem about a recliner

I honestly never owned anything finer

We have plastic and metal like in a diner

Now we relax and listen to Leiner

Each day I marvel and say “This is mine-r!”

That G-D loves us, this is a sign – or

He rewards those who aren’t whiner(s)…


I’m making this up on the spot

It doesn’t make sense a whole lot

But I never in my whole life got

Such a stunning chair – I did not!


Thank you!
