New Home Furnishings for Families

United Way of Allegheny County is partnering with Roomful Express furniture to present the 50 Years, 50 Families program. The program will provide up to $3,000 worth of new home furnishings to 50 deserving families throughout the Pittsburgh region. Two recipients will be selected on a weekly basis from now through September 3, 2008. One recipient's story will be featured each Thursday evening on the KDKA TV news at 5 or 6PM.

Families or individuals can be nominated for the program by completing a nomination form at or by picking up an application at any Roomful Express location. Those submitting nominations to the program must write a 250 word essay about why the family they are nominating needs and deserves new home furnishings.

Nomination finalists will be judged each week by a selection panel consisting of Roomful Express and United Way representatives, including volunteers from its Women's Leadership Council and Young Leaders Group. Judging will be based on compelling need and the circumstances leading to that need.
