SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Ashley Furniture HomeStore recently raised more than $25,000 for Springfield-based Convoy of Hope’s feedONE Initiative.
“Partnering with Ashley Furniture HomeStore is crucial to what we do,” says Hal Donaldson, president and co-founder of Convoy of Hope. “We are grateful for the generosity of the owner and employees. They’re making a difference in the lives of many throughout the world.”
During the campaign, customers who donated $20 to Convoy of Hope received 20 percent off their purchase at Ashley Furniture HomeStore locations in Springfield, Mo., Joplin, Mo., Springdale, Ark., and Rogers, Ark. Ashley Furniture HomeStore matched those donations and employees participated in a giving campaign which will allow Convoy of Hope to feed more than 200 children for an entire year.
“We’re blessed to work with Convoy of Hope each year,” says Andrew Covington, president and owner of Ashley Furniture HomeStore. “I am also grateful for employees who choose to give part of their wages to help those in need.”
