Ruby Gordon Home is proud to partner with Restore run by Flower City Habitat for Humanity. Habitat Restore
is a resource where the public can shop for donated quality new and used furniture and appliances at
fair prices. The proceeds from all the furniture and appliances sold by Habitat Restores funds future
Habitat for Humanity projects. Ruby Gordon Home is continually donating NEW furniture to Flower City Habitat
for Humanity Restore and was recognized by Habitat for Humanity with the “2015 Restore Award,” “for
supporting the missions of Flower City Habitat for Humanity through dedication to Habitat Restore.”
As a locally owned and operated business, Ruby-Gordon takes great pride investing in the Rochester
Community, and the Golisano Children’s Hospital is one of those great community resources. Golisano
Children’s Hospital’s mission is to provide comprehensive care for children and their families, educate
future pediatricians and pediatric specialists, and perform progressive research that will lead to the
medical breakthroughs of tomorrow. Ruby-Gordon believes Golisano Children’s Hospital is a beacon of
hope and is proud to donate to the only medical center for children in Rochester, allowing them to access
the best medical care possible.
For International Women’s Day Ruby-Gordon hosted a community celebration event to honor the Women’s
Rights Movement. Ruby-Gordon invited renowned artist Phillip Burke to paint a unique portrait of our very
own Susan B. Anthony live at Ruby-Gordon. The Susan B. Anthony caricature was auctioned off for over
$10,000 with the proceeds from the auction being donated to the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
Ruby-Gordon has adopted green business practices in our mission to preserve the environment around
us and shrink our ecological footprint. We currently have a very successful recycling program at our store,
warehouse and corporate offices in which we recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and other furniture packing
materials. Recently, Ruby-Gordon invested in a brand new fleet of low emission delivery trucks to reduce our
carbon imprint. We will continue to challenge our store and logistics operations to work toward Zero Waste.
