Supporting our military is a cornerstone of our service to the communities in which we work and live.
Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) December 19, 2014
This month, Ashley Furniture HomeStore – Jacksonville, helped furnish the new K9s for Warriors facility at Nocatee, which will provide critical recovery care for post-9/11 servicemen and women. The donation included complete bedroom, living room, and dining room sets for 16 suites to help the Warriors feel at home during their rehabilitation, with a value of over $50,000.
The above follows last month’s efforts by Ashley Furniture HomeStores here in Florida that provided 680 pieces of furniture valued at $120,000 to 50 newly provided homes for formerly homeless veterans in support of Operation Reveille. The event, sponsored in part by the furniture retailer, was held at Port Tampa Bay.
“Supporting our military is a cornerstone of our service to the communities in which we work and live,” said Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Jacksonville CEO, Howard Fineman. “With K9s for Warriors doing such incredible work right here in Jacksonville, Florida, giving our resources to further its mission and do more good, is a win for everyone. We couldn't be prouder to be a part of this important milestone and ongoing program.”
With proven success, K9s for Warriors provides a new leash on life to rescue dogs and military heroes, as well as empowering warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. The Nocatee facility will serve 200 warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury each year.
“No words can express our gratitude to Ashley for the care, passion, and assistance, they provided K9s For Warriors,” said Shari Duval, President of K9s For Warriors. “Our ‘Home to Heal’ will save many lives, and we are so proud to partner with Ashley to make this happen.”
Ashley Furniture HomeStore – Jacksonville also gives a portion of all sales to military families to the Greater Jacksonville Area USO and will make another donation this month, bringing the local contribution to over $70,000. “We are proud to be the premiere destination for our local military families to make their furniture and mattress purchases, and know that by giving back a portion of those proceeds to local military families in need, we are all together making a positive difference.” said Fineman.
