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.
