Absolute Exhibits to Construct and Donate 200 Platform Beds to Houston Children's Charity
Absolute Exhibits, a full-service exhibit design and manufacturing company, has announced that it will be constructing and donating 200 platform beds to the Houston Children's Charity to provide aid to children displaced by hurricane Harvey.
The beds will be built at the company's manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida after-hours this week and shipped to Houston on Sunday, September 10.
Absolute Exhibits is asking the Las Vegas and Orlando communities to bring new and unused toys, stuffed animals and backpacks to the company's facilities listed below.
Both locations will be accepting donations from Wednesday, September 6 through Friday, September 8 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Clothing will also be accepted but must be double wrapped in plastic trash bags and sealed with tape.

- Tustin, California - 1382 Valencia Ave, Ste H, Tustin, CA 92780
"With the devastating hurricane many children will be displaced from their parents and many won't be reunited for some time as parents will be struggling to get back on their feet," said Jan Koren, President of Absolute Exhibits. "We hope that the beds and donations will provide some sense of comfort and security to these children."
In addition, the company has organized a joint effort among the companies listed below to contribute to the cause.
"Our employees, from builders to office staff and truck drivers to managers, have offered to donate their time to bring this vision to reality," said Todd Koren, CEO of Absolute Exhibits. "I'm incredibly proud of our team's commitment, and thankful for the generous donations from the contributing companies."
