A dollar a week adds up. Ashley Furniture Industries’ “Dollar a Week” giving program recently produced a donation of $38,300 to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital from the company’s Mississippi employees.
The medical facility in Memphis, Tenn., treats more than 250,000 children each year in a 255-bed hospital that features state-of-the-art technology and family friendly resources. Over the past 13 years, Ashley employees have contributed nearly $200,000 to the hospital.
Through the Dollar a Week initiative, Ashley’s Mississippi workers also awarded $26,476 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers where children diagnosed with cancer are treated at no cost.
“Our employees should feel very proud today for their impactful donations to these organizations. It’s truly remarkable to see their continued support and commitment year after year,” Ron Wanek, founder and chairman of HFA member Ashley, said in a news release.
