Ashley marketing team raises $1,600 for High Point food bank
October 26, 2016,
HIGH POINT -- Ashley Furniture collected and donated $1,600 to the food bank at West End Ministries in High Point.
West End Ministries is a community center focused on working with residents and other stakeholders to make the West End area of the city a safer and better place to live.
West End Ministries has many different branches to service the community, but the branch that most in need is its food bank, which just suffered a two-thirds cut in funding, which has forced it to turn families away.
“We were thinking the best way to help contribute would be to collect donations and fill the pantry,” said Alessi.
