This month’s Houston Furniture Bank (HFB) Board Spotlight features Board Member Tom Harwell. He has been on the Board of Directors for less than a year. Tom was recruited to Houston Furniture Bank by long-time supporter Stephanie Haynes, a Houston Furniture Bank Advisory Board member.

Tom has spent 45 years in the hospitality industry. He supports nonprofits that provide services to people with special needs and children, as well as cancer research. Tom has been married for nearly 40 years and has four children and five grandchildren. He enjoys reading and landscaping as well as cooking and wines. He also likes Houston’s music venues and the Houston Zoo.

Tom represents the Hotel & Lodging Association of Greater Houston, a 25-year supporter of the Houston Furniture Bank.  With a vast and brilliant background in the hospitality industry, he will help cultivate a relationship that benefit hundreds of families in need while creating great value for participating members of the industry.

Tom is committed to Houston Furniture Bank’s mission to ensure that no child has to sleep on the floor. “I like seeing Houston Furniture Bank impact people’s lives in time of need,” he said.

Thank you, Tom, for all your support!
