Mikael and Karen Hansen, owners of Copenhagen Imports on South Tamiami Trail, connected with the Resurrection House many years ago through their church, appreciating that it was an all-faiths organization lending a helping hand to those in need in our community. Resurrection House has been serving Sarasota’s homeless population in the heart of the Rosemary District for more than 25 years. They provide a range of services, including but not limited to showers, laundry, counseling, medical treatments, veteran’s assistance, food and clothing.
Through an annual in-store holiday promotion, the Hansen’s have raised $35,000 over the past six years for the organization, which they find comfort in knowing allocates 100 percent of those donated dollars directly to their mission. That’s a lot of warm showers and counseling sessions for some of our community’s most disadvantaged and what you call business philanthropy in action.
Now that our community is experiencing unprecedented needs, Mikael and Karen requested that the successful promotion be brought back from their manufacturing partner, Stressless. This means those who have been shopping for Stressless products can save $500 when they donate $50 to a local charity. Due to the rising needs to feed residents at and below poverty level, the Hansen’s extended the program to include All Faiths Food Bank as a funds recipient, in addition to the Resurrection House.
It’s truly a time to be intentional with your dollars. Amazon and online shopping can be great, but will it provide meals and shelter to people in your own ZIP code? Will your purchase help a family-owned business that’s been serving our community with quality service for 36 years? It’s important to remember our local retailers and small businesses are the heartbeat of a thriving community. Supporing them has the power to truly change lives right here in our town.
Starting June 5, Copenhagen Imports will give shoppers up to $500 off the famous Norwegian Stressless recliners and $200 off on every Stressless Sofa Seat when they donate $50 to the Resurrection House or All Faiths Food Bank.
The Stressless brand is one that will last you a lifetime and there’s no better time to shop it if you’re in the market for sustainably constructed, extremely comfortable and fashion-forward furniture. Its craftsmanship is a legacy, handed down generation after generation. Click here to view short video to learn more about their products. Thankfully, we don’t have to go to Norway to buy them! Copenhagen Imports carries the original Stressless chairs, loveseats and sofas in a wide variety of colors. Go visit Copenhagen Imports before August 3 when the promo ends. They are taking all the necessary measures to ensure a safe shopping experience.
