January 27, 2012 – The familiar furniture at Piedmont Triad International Airport will soon be serving a new purpose thanks to Greater Greensboro Habitat for Humanity.

As part of its effort to create a top-notch passenger experience for travelers using Piedmont Triad International Airport, airport management is installing new furniture in the airport terminal, and has donated the existing furniture to Habitat for Humanity for sale at its ReStore.

“We are grateful to our friends at Habitat for Humanity for extending the life of the furniture that has served our airport patrons so well,” said Henry Isaacson, Chairman, Piedmont Triad Airport Authority.

“We are updating the terminal with new furniture manufactured right down the road in High Point, but the old furniture is in good shape and we didn’t want to discard it.”

Furniture donated to the ReStore will ultimately help build homes for deserving families and strengthen our community because proceeds from furniture sales is used to build affordable, energy-efficient homes in Greensboro, according to the organization’s website.

“Habitat came to the airport to pick up the furniture. The ReStore makes it easy to donate,” Isaacson said. “The community is lucky to have them.”
