Ashley to donate more than $2M toward Harvey, Irma relief efforts

ARCADIA, Wis. — Ashley Furniture Inds., a leading manufacturer of home furnishings, is assisting with relief efforts for the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida.

Ashley is committed to helping the victims who have incurred damage to their homes and belongings due to these hurricanes and is contributing products and subsidizing discounts with a combined retail value of more than $1 million, in each state.

“Like the rest of America, we were shaken by the images coming from Texas and Florida during and after the two storms,” said Todd Wanek, president and CEO. “Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with the victims during this difficult time.”

Residents that have been impacted by the storms should contact the closest Ashley HomeStore for additional information on this contribution. Ashley Furniture is currently working with local relief organizations and Ashley HomeStores in the following locations:

  • Texas — the Houston metro, Corpus Christi, Victoria, Beaumont and Nederland
  • Florida — Tampa/St. Petersburg, Orlando, Jacksonville, Naples/Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers and Miami
