Ashley HomeStore of Wichita Has Teamed Up to Fight Hunger with Feeding America  Providing Over 4.4 Million Meals Nationwide 

Home Furnishings retailer ​Ashley HomeStore (Ashley) of Wichita​ ​has teamed up with  Feeding America, donating $5,000,​ ​to ensure that neighbors in need have required food and resources.​ ​As  COVID-19 continues to impact the many communities we call home, there is a growing need for the  services Feeding America provides.

In total, Ashley HomeStores around the country have come together to  donate over $448,000, providing more than 4.4 Million meals nationwide In addition, there was a match  provided for Ashley HomeStores contribution through the Tony Robbins challenge, bringing the total  amount to more than 8 Million meals donated throughout the nation.  

“In these uncertain times, we have the responsibility and privilege of contributing and giving back to our  community by providing meals to help fight hunger,” stated Jay B. Storey, President and CEO, Ashley  HomeStore of Wichita. “Feeding America is a great organization to partner with to distribute meals to those  who are most in need. Together we can all make a difference.” 

Starting in 1979, Feeding America ​is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States, serving  more than 40 million people each year​. As the second largest non-profit in the United States, Feeding  America is a highly-rated, efficient organization that puts 99 percent of all donations directly back into  programs and services. 

Due to the increasing effects of COVID-19, 98% of Feeding America food banks are experiencing an  increase in demand, with an average increase of 63%. ​School closures, job disruptions, lack of paid sick  leave and the coronavirus' disproportionate impact on adults age 60 and older and low-income families are  all contributing to the unprecedented demands placed on food banks across the country. ​Ashley’s  contribution will help feed these individuals in need during this trying time.  

“Ashley HomeStore is proud to be able to come together, across our band of retail stores throughout the  U.S., to help others in a time of great need,” remarked Todd Wanek, President and CEO, Ashley Furniture  Industries, Inc. ​

“COVID-19 is having a major impact around the world, and it truly hits home when you see  the impact firsthand in our own communities. During these unprecedented times, we are proud as an  organization to partner with Feeding America, joining in their fight to combat hunger and aid our  communities across this nation.”
