Furniture Share's 2023 Ask Brunch

Standing together as a nation, it is our privilege and responsibility to champion causes that embody the true spirit of patriotism and compassion for our veterans. As a beacon of our commitment to these heroes, Furniture Share's Ask Luncheon is deeply devoted to the Veterans Welcome Home Kit program. By supporting this initiative, we convert barren spaces into homes, laying the foundation for our veterans to reconstruct their lives and play their pivotal roles in our national narrative.

However, having a roof is only the starting point. Beds, blankets, cooking essentials, and even a simple couch are vital. Imagine the transformational power of these items – enabling a better parent, spouse, co-worker, or student. Furniture Share is here to bridge this gap.

We cordially invite you to the 2nd Annual ASK Brunch by Furniture Share. Engage with speakers from various facets of our initiative and hear stories that resonate.

Date: Thursday, October 26, 2023
Location: North Albany Community Church
Time: 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM

Soldier coming home

Together, we raised $43,875!

These generous contributions will be DOUBLED by The Heatherington Foundation to $87,750 to make this our BIGGEST fundraiser ever! These donations will make a world of difference in our "Veterans Welcome Home Kit" and "Healthy Families Thriving Communities" programs.

It's a testament to the amazing power of our community coming together for a great cause.
