At EllaMenoPea it's important to us to be a socially responsible company that cares for the community around us.  To do our part we've partnered with the Ben Towne Foundation.  Let our founder, Cody Lamens, tell you why.    

In September of 2012 I lost my uncle, Neil Lamens, to cancer.  Neil was not only my uncle but he was my mentor and taught me everything I know about building furniture and fine craftsmanship. He also instilled a passion in me for American furniture manufacturing.  As I watched cancer ruthlessly take his life I made a vow that EllaMenoPea would give back in Neil's name.  I wanted to give back to an organization that was local, going big, and gave 100% of donations towards the cause. The Ben Towne Foundation was an exact match as they have set out to find a cure for childhood cancers.  Nobody should have to experience how devastating cancer is let alone a child who is yet to experience life.  For that reason EllaMenoPea is honored to give back to this amazing organization in the name of Neil Lamens, the original Furnitologist.
