Interiors, a curator of highly creative commercial interior environments and workspaces, has made a donation of classroom desks, workstations and task chairs to the non-profit Orange County Rescue Mission in Tustin, Calif.

Orange County Rescue Mission (OCRM) serves homeless men, women and children through guidance counseling, education, job training, shelter, food, clothing, health care and independent living communities. The residents, from all walks of life, are survivors of abuse, addiction, joblessness and abandonment.

The products donated, delivered and installed by Tangram, were used to furnish OCRMs corporate office and student classrooms. OCRM received 61 Steelcase Node Desks for students to use in the OCRM classrooms. Classrooms were renovated during the 2020 pandemic so the 61 resident students could continue to learn remotely. As children continue to have hybrid schooling options, OCRM has put in a concerted effort in supplying functional learning spaces for the children, with continued support from Tangram Interiors.

Workstations and task chairs were set up for adults currently working for OCRM in the corporate office in various departments. These furniture donations provide an organized space for volunteers and employees to assist residents.
"Tangram believes in putting people at the center of everything we do, both in our offices and in our communities," said Joe Lozowski, CEO of Tangram Interiors. "I first discovered OCRM when I took my family to volunteer at the organization for Thanksgiving in 2019. A lot of people have a misconception of what life in Orange County is like for many people. There are countless families that are suffering and OCRM acts as a safety net for when they need a place to stay, eat or educate their children. The work theyre doing, the work Jim Palmer is doing, is amazing and they do not get enough credit."

"We are sincerely grateful to Tangram Interiors for this substantial contribution," said Jim Palmer, President and CEO of Orange County Rescue Mission. "The scope of this extraordinary donation allows us to ensure a comfortable and functional learning space for the school-aged children at the Village of Hope. Children who have experienced homelessness often face academic challenges, sometimes falling behind their peers, and it is our goal to provide homeless and at-risk children with the same resources that are available to their peers of higher socio-economic status. Tangrams donations will help us to reach that goal."
