Member Spotlight: The Green Chair Project


The Green Chair Project, Inc., was co-founded by Jackie Craig and Beth Smoot, in April of 2010. Jackie and Beth are both trained as real estate stagers and in that work, they consistently observed that many people have too much “stuff” in their homes. Yet it is sometimes hard for people to part with their unused items because the items are still good and could be used by “someone”.

The Green Chair Project is hosting a Summer Fundraiser this weekend! The selection is only open to the general public a few times a year, so take advantage of this opportunity and raise money for this amazing organization!
