Mesa, AZ - Copenhagen Imports donated 40 brand new sofa beds to Bridging AZ Furniture Bank. The donation will be used to support Bridging AZ’s Veteran’s program in collaboration with Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness [www.azceh.org] and their H3 VETS Project. Bridging AZ Furniture Bank supports over 100 social service agencies with basic furniture and household items for their clients. H3 VETS Project’s goal is to house all chronically homeless Veterans living in Maricopa County by June of 2014.
According to Shane Groen, project manager for H3 VETS Project, the veterans “are very grateful and you can tell they feel special to have such a nice and new piece of furniture when they move home.” Copenhagen Imports [www.copenhagenliving.com], which offers contemporary furniture and accessories for the home and office, is extremely pleased that the futon - style sofa beds are going to veterans.
