Home Furnishings Association members pride themselves on their community involvement, and Jordan’s Furniture is no exception.

The New England company raised more than $95,000 last week for a local adoption agency during its  10th Annual Walk/Run for Adoption at its Taunton, Mass., location. The 5K race, which featured roughly 525 runners and walkers from New England, benefited the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) in its ongoing mission to find adoptive homes for children and teens waiting in foster care.

“What a great way to celebrate foster care adoption … through an event that celebrates families,” said Eliot Tatelman, Jordan’s president. “It’s a wonderful feeling to know that we helped to bring children and parents together to create families. It does not get any better.”

The family-friendly event kicked off at 10 a.m. on Sunday May 19 with a 5K race followed by an after-party filled with food, music and activities including face painting, balloon artistry, glitter tattoos, a family photo booth and arts and crafts.

MARE focuses on children in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families who cannot be reunited with their birth families, including those who are considered more difficult to place – teens, sibling groups and children with emotional, physical and intellectual challenges. These children are in need of adoptive families and a place to call home.

Jordan’s, a longtime HFA member, has seven stores throughout New England.
