WAYLAND, NY – Gunlocke, an industry leader in high-end casegoods, conferencing, seating and lounge furniture, is proud to announce Crisis Nursery as the winner of its first “Office Needs for Good Deeds” online office makeover contest. The organization will receive a makeover estimated at approximately $75,000 for its offices featuring Gunlocke’s award-winning casegood line, Silea™.
Located in Urbana, IL, Crisis Nursery is an organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse through the provision of emergency intervention and support to families in crisis. Crisis Nursery was one of 116 nonprofit organizations that submitted pictures of their offices along with a written description of their work within the community and how an office makeover would positively impact their ability to better serve their communities. A panel of judges then selected 10 semifinalists, out of which Crisis Nursery was chosen as the grand prize winner. Entrants were judged on their devotion to execute the nonprofit’s mission, their positive influence on the community and the need for a more efficient workspace.
“We feel extremely fortunate to have been chosen to receive this much-needed makeover of our working space,” says Stephanie Record, executive director of Crisis Nursery. “We’re excited about how the newly designed office area will enable us to better assist the children and families in need.”
“At Gunlocke, we’re always looking for ways to help those who help the many,” says Don Mead, president of Gunlocke. “Being able to provide a deserving organization like Crisis Nursery with a beautiful, new office is something we’re very proud to be able to do.”
The Gunlocke Silea casegood line that will be installed in the winning office is a unique furniture solution that incorporates functional necessities like technology integration, wire management and innovative storage. It boasts aesthetic diversity and appeal that has not been sacrificed in the name of utility. In fact, Silea’s beauty lies not only in its functionality and flexibility of scale, but its simplicity.
Additional sponsors and products of the Gunlocke “Office Needs for Good Deeds” online contest included Johnsonite Space™ modular resilient flooring and wall base, Luxo Terea™ task lighting and Loft™ uplighting, as well as Pratt & Lambert Accolade® acrylic latex interior coatings.
