Huntington Health hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the relocation and reopening of the furniture, home décor and clothing resale shop Huntington Collection. The shop, which is now located at 2670 East Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, donates all proceeds to the Huntington Senior Care Network, a nationally recognized program that helps more than 15,000 older and disabled adults and families remain healthy and independent.
“Huntington Collection has a long history in Pasadena. Not only has it provided our community with a beloved place to find recycled treasures; for almost 40 years its earnings of over $10 million have given thousands of seniors essential services,” said Dr. Lori J. Morgan, president and CEO of Huntington Health.
The opening was attended by Huntington Collection supporters, including Mayor Victor Gordo, Councilman Gene Masuda, Huntington Senior Care Network and Huntington Health’s board members and executive management team.
“The Huntington Collection is a treasure in the community,” said Gordo. “It’s a reminder of the complexity involved in caring for those in need. I’d like to congratulate Huntington Health for taking the time to think out of the box to create this resale store which helps bring added resources to people that need them most.”
Masuda added, “The Huntington Collection has a wonderful reputation for selling great items. However, the best thing about this store is that sales support services for older adults, and that’s so important for our community.”
Morgan recognized the city of Pasadena for its support and thanked Huntington Health Chair of the Board Jaynie Studenmund and board member Paul Johnson for their commitment to ensuring the continuity of the program. She also acknowledged the dedication of team members from Huntington Collection, Senior Care Network and Huntington’s volunteer services and construction department.
“Your hard work is being celebrated today,” Morgan said.
Huntington Collection is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. To learn more about the shop and for information on how to make a qualified donation, visit huntingtoncollection.org.
