Furniture Bank Acquires a New, Larger Warehouse Space
After years of assisting Ahwatukee families with donated furnishings for their homes, Furniture Bank, Inc. is getting a larger space. Their nonprofit charity is expanding to be able to accept more donations and help more families, and build relationships with commercial moving and logistic services in the area.
Their larger warehouse is going to be able to handle double the usual storage then last year. “It gives us more credibility, but it also gives us the ability to go to corporations for additional funding,” said Tami Jackson, founder of Furniture Bank, in the recent Ahwatukee Foothills News article.
This marks their second year helping local families in need. Most homeless people take a while to get back on their feet, and once they do this nonprofit wants ensure that they have a resource to help. Residents were donating so many items that they were running out of space quickly.
Now, Jackson will be able to serve families in the Kyrene School District, as well. Last year, they were able to help 50 families and they plan on doubling that number, or even triple, that this time around. “We need a warehouse, so that we don’t have to turn down furniture,” she said in the article.
