Make It Home Bay Area hosted its inaugural fundraiser, Salvage & Style, on Oct. 20. The event raised $220,000, bringing together creative teams across the Bay Area design industry and like-minded members of the community in a combined effort to end furniture scarcity. Tables were styled with salvaged accessories and fabrics that ranged from whimsical to ultra-modern.
In collaboration with the Downtown Streets Team, the program highlighted its clients’ needs and the importance of creating safe spaces for those in transition.
“We recently celebrated our third anniversary,” said Carolyn Rebuffel Flannery, founder and president of Make It Home Bay Area. “We’ve served over 1,500 households and diverted more than 1,600 tons from the landfill so far. Funds raised from the evening will allow Make It Home to serve even more families across the Bay Area. Keep bringing us the good stuff!”
