Prayers for Lylah / Cure S.M.A.
Lylah and her family have spent most of Lylah’s life dealing with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Recently Lylah joined the girl scouts and asked if we wanted to buy some girl scout cookies from her. Of course, we said yes! We also had another thought. Maybe our customers would want some cookies too, and maybe we could help spread the word about SMA and how people could help. So we bought 200 boxes and are putting them in random chair orders over the next few weeks!
We are also giving away a $250 Amazon Gift Card for people who share a picture of their Crandall Office Chair at your workstation and tag #CureSMA to help spread awareness.
This giveaway is open to anyone who has ever purchased a chair from Crandall Office Furniture. To enter, follow the steps below:
$250 Gift Card Giveaway Rules for Entry:
And that’s it! Every post gets one entry into the drawing. To anyone who received cookies, if you include the box of cookies in the picture with your chair, you get an additional entry into the drawing.
There will be a random drawing of all entries on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 and the winner will receive a $250 Amazon Gift Card!View Facebook Post

COVID-19 Hospital Masks
During the early days of COVID-19, the shortage of face masks was a huge problem nationwide. Several local hospitals reached out to us due to our sewing capabilities and asked if we could help sew reusable cotton face masks for hospital workers. We switched gears and decided to devote part of our manufacturing capabilities to making these masks and donating them at no expense to the hospitals.
We are excited to be able to use our unique skill set to help the courageous hospital workers, who are literally putting their lives on the line to make sure each and every one of us are safe.
We are so glad that PPE supply has come back to an normal level, but are very excited we were able to help our local front-line workers in our own unique way.
The Principal Taxi
We had the amazing opportunity to help Principal John Erickson at Hilltop Elementary School (Highline Public Schools) give his “Principal Taxi” a face lift!
John created the Principal Taxi to reward students for good behavior by picking them up in his “taxi” (office chair), and giving them a ride around the school & to the front of lines when they exhibit the school’s primary values – Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Do the Right Thing.
We found John on social media and thought his taxi needed a proper upgrade, so we designed and donated a custom Steelcase Criterion Office chair to help make the Principal Taxi more official! We absolutely love the creativity John brings to educating his students, and wanted to help however we could!
The Diatribe is a Grand Rapids based organization with the goal of uniting you and raising awareness through art. Their mission is “The Diatribe uses performing arts to empower young people to share their stories, raise awareness of social issues, and create change within their communities.”
When setting up a new office, the Diatribe was looking for some local furniture and reached out asking if we could help. We were able to donate a few chairs, but also took their very loud logo, and used our custom printing to put that on their chairs. Dubbed “the seizure chair” here at the shop, we think the custom Diatribe chairs came out great and shout as loudly as the Diatribe does!
