DirectBuy Donates Furniture to Help Grant a Room-Makeover Wish to Zionsville Teen

Zionsville, IN, July 29, 2012 --( DirectBuy, the home improvement and furnishings club with confidential dealer prices, recently teamed up with Make-A-Wish® to grant Zionsville Wish Child Logan’s dream of having his garage transformed into a man cave.

Fourteen-year-old Logan is currently battling a cancer of the muscles. This condition requires him to stay indoors for long periods of time. By donating a brand new sofa, love seat, and shelving unit, DirectBuy was able to assist in fulfilling Logan’s dream: a place to escape and relax, in the form of his very own man cave. Here, he can regain the strength needed to continue to fight his illness.

“We were honored to be approached by Make-A-Wish® and assist in granting Logan’s wish. His fight is an inspiration to all of us at DirectBuy, where our goal is to provide access to a better life,” said Patti Titus, Sr. Director of Merchandise Services.

DirectBuy of Indianapolis Club Owner Genta Powell attended the celebration that served as the unveiling of Logan’s man cave. “I am so glad that I was able to witness the smile on Logan’s face, it was priceless. DirectBuy of Indianapolis cares about its neighbors and the community and is very dedicated to fulfilling even more wishes in the future,” said Mrs. Powell.
