An Air Force veteran is sleeping peacefully, thanks to a generous donation by Home Furnishings Association member Walker Furniture. The Las Vegas furniture retailer donated a new bed and recliner to North Las Vegas resident Cleveland Lee Johnson and his wife, Patricia Ann Stone-Johnson. Patricia Ann Stone-Johnson described the donations made by Walker to her husband as “life-saving.”

Help for Heroes

The new furniture was not only delivered to the house but also set up by a crew of Walker Furniture workers. It’s all part of a program the store runs called Help for Heroes. “This was just amazing. More than we could ever expect. Just unbelievable,” said Stone-Johnson. Stone-Johnson said the bed will allow her husband to sit up and watch television. “He will be able to rest because he’s bedridden most of the time,” she said. The oversized bed is customized for Johnson, who’s a tall man, standing at 6 feet, four inches.

‘This is what we do’

Linda Alterwitz-Mizrahi is co-owner of Walker Furniture. She made it a point to be part of the delivery. “We’ve been in business in the Las Vegas Valley for over 65 years and it’s our honor to give back to our community,” said Alterwitz-Mizrahi. “We say furniture is all we do. But really this is what we do.” Johnson’s wife said she rarely leaves her husband’s side. “My whole life has been him. When he’s in here in the day, I’m here,” she said.
