EasyClosets Designs Relaxing Solution for Student Battling Cancer

Originally posted in Woodworking Network on June 3, 2014

EasyClosets, a division of The Stow Company, partnered with Lin’s Linens to create a bedroom makeover for a college student coping with cancer.

The bedroom was transformed to offer a calm and relaxing environment.

Lin’s Linens helps women diagnosed with cancer by creating nurturing environments where they can heal after surgery, radiation treatment and chemotherapy. EasyClosets donated a custom bookshelf storage system that surrounds the bed for a 21-year-old college student battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Employee volunteers designed and built an organization system that was customized for the space and the student’s personal needs.

Mikey Masciarelli, designer for EasyClosets, worked with Lin’s Linens’ volunteer Kelli Chitti, owner of Interiors by Kelli design studio, to bring her vision for the space to life.

“We designed the solution to include an open bridge above the bed, and side towers with adjustable shelving and drawers, creating built-in night stands on both sides of the bed,” Masciarelli said.

As a part of The Stow Company, EasyClosets participates in an annual corporate-wide initiative called the Stow Difference program. The program endows employee teams representing each department to give a boost to causes that benefit the local community.

“We are committed to giving back in our local communities of Pine Brook, NJ, and Holland, MI,” said Bobbie Locke, director of marketing and communications for The Stow Company. “Our Stow Difference Program presents our employees with an opportunity to contribute to worthy causes with their time and talents.”
