Ask a pageant contestant what she would wish for if she had a magic genie and she might answer “To have world peace, and end world hunger.”
Unfortunately, there is no magic genie and world hunger is definitely a daunting issue. We often think of “hunger problems” and picture innocent children in a 3rd world country going to sleep with no dinner, but it hits so much closer to home than just that.
So close to home in fact, that it’s affecting our communities. 1 in 6 people face hunger every single day in America. And according to research conducted by Feeding America, California has more food insecure counties than any other state in the U.S (more on that article here).
Ashley Furniture Homestores started the Furnish Your Home and Feed From Your Heart Campaign to help stop hunger in our communities.
Helping end this problem is simple and affordable. In fact, every $1 donated can help feed up to 7 people.
How can you help?
During the month of February, Ashley Furniture Homestore is partnering with local food banks. If you come into one of our homestores (from the 17 listed in California) and donate to this cause, you will receive a gift card to our homestores.
Donate $25 and receive a $50 gift card to Ashley Furniture Homestores. Donate $50 and receive a $100 gift card.
Last year, we raised $45,139!
But this year, we have set our goals much higher- we would like to be able to donate $102,000 to local food banks.
Help us reach our goal by visiting our homestores and donating a small amount to make a big difference.
