CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga will be a part of La-Z-Boy’s “Build a Chair” event on Thursday, July 19 at 4 p.m., that will also include comforting and feeding families with a delicious McDonald’s meal provided by owner/operator Brad Moore from Dayton, Tenn., and his crew.

The “Build a Chair” event is a philanthropic effort between the La-Z-Boy manufacturing warehouse in Dayton, Tenn., and the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Greater Chattanooga. The La-Z-Boy employees with the help of current RMHC family residents will build a chair for donation to RMHC.

“When it comes to helping sick children and their families, providing comfort is the least we can do, shares Dennis Poland, EHS manager at La-Z-Boy. Together with RMHC, we hope to help families have a comfortable home while their children receive medical care. It’s our privilege to support this program.”

La-Z-Boy’s “Build a Chair” program, based out of the Tennessee La-Z-Boy manufacturing facility, has benefitted a number of Ronald McDonald House Chapters throughout the country since La-Z-Boy became an official RMHC partner ten years ago.
