A group of volunteers gave up their own free time to help convert a property in Texas into a suitable place for at-risk children, with bean bags playing a key part in the refurbishment process.
The Seguin Gazette-Enterprise notes how dozens of employees from the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) worked over the course of a Saturday to help build ‘The Lodge’ as part of the Our Day to Shine volunteer programme.
With the centre providing somewhere safe to stay for children between the ages of five and 17 who have had to be removed from their home due to abuse, the volunteers help to paint rooms and put up electrical fixtures.
In addition, the GBRA volunteers installed hardwood flooring in the ‘nook room’, a study area that is full of bean bag chairs.
However, this is not the only youth support centre to feature bean bag sofas.
Last month, the Eastern Daily Press indicated that the Victim Support Norfolk’s Great Yarmouth centre has a TV lounge lined with bean bags, as part of its aim of giving somewhere for young victims of crime to discuss any problems they have been facing.
