Contraxx Furniture donates $1,000 to help Harvey victims

McCONNELSVILLE — Contraxx Furniture, a custom hospitality/commercial furniture design and manufacturing firm located in McConnelsville, recently donated $1,000 to aid hurricane Harvey victims in Houston, TX. Organized by Carol Humphreys in Zanesville, two trailer-loads of relief supplies were shipped on Saturday, Sept. 9, and will be distributed by volunteers from North Terrace Church of Christ.

The $1,000 contribution is a gift from Contraxx employees: Greg Duskey, April Nichols, Olivia Irwin, Maureen Bond, and Ashley Jones and was invested locally in personal care and medical supplies from Shrivers Pharmacies.

“John Coler and Jessica Sabine at Shrivers Pharmacies provided all of these supplies at cost,” said Mike Workman, owner of Contraxx. It was very generous for them to volunteer to do this. Carol is so excited that she can stretch the dollars and help even more people, and we wish everyone in Houston a speedy and safe recovery.”
