Ashley Furniture Hosts Community Event
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Ashley Furniture HomeStore partners with Convoy of Hope each year and hosts a community event to raise money and awareness for the international humanitarian-relief organization’s work.
“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.”
On June 2-7, customers who donate $20 to Convoy of Hope will receive 20 percent off their purchase at Ashley Furniture HomeStore locations in Springfield, Mo., Joplin, Mo., Springdale, Ark., Rogers, Ark., and Fort Smith, Ark. Ashley Furniture HomeStore will match those donations and their employees will also participate in a giving campaign for Convoy of Hope’s feedONE initiative, a program feeding nearly 150,000 children in 10 nations. Every $10 raised will feed a hungry child for an entire month.
“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 their owner and employees. They are making a difference in the lives of many throughout the world.”
