AUBURN, Mass. — The Auburn Mall has donated its original tables and chairs to the Auburn Public School System as well as the Habitat for Humanity-MetroWest/Greater Worcester’s ReStore Center.

The Auburn Mall has been updating its food court with new furniture, and the management team decided to donate the gently used tables and chairs rather than toss them in the trash.

“We are very happy to donate the furniture to two important organizations in the community,” said General Mall Manger Chris Bastien. “We know that our donation will be put to good use in bettering school and home environments that are in need.”

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Metrowest/Greater Worcester, located at 11 Distributor Road in Worcester, sells donated new and gently used home improvement supplies, building materials and furnishings.

"Proceeds from all of our sales help build homes in our community and reduce landfill waste,” said Louis Garcia, ReStore's floor manager. “The items donated by Auburn Mall will be sold to the general public at ReStore and the funds raised from their sale will assist in our construction projects,” he added.

Hmm, I wonder how the quality of the furniture is before they are donated. I have seen some nasty-looking furniture in food courts, and usually, they need to be tossed in the dumps immediately, instead of donated. Maybe because they have low budgets, but I don’t often see malls using good quality furniture for their customers. My uncle owns a company, and he makes sure each of his employees have good furniture so they stay comfortable.
