As our Co-CEO, Jerry Hellmann maintains, "Charity is an obligation, not an option." Being good neighbors doesn't just mean keeping our parking lots trash-free and our buildings in tip-top condition. Working charitably within our communities is a crucial thread in the woven tapestry that is AFR®.
With Together We Can as our #1 company initiative, we at AFR® Furniture Rental are deeply passionate about giving back. We have partnered with various organizations to rebuild homes for victims of catastrophe, paying for building materials and donating furnishings of over a dozen homes in New Orleans & Rockaway. We participate in home rebuild days, volunteer at animal shelters, feed those in need, organize charity walks, pack groceries at local food banks, and much more!
Food insecurity affects 42 Million people living in the United States. For the 2017 Holiday season, Team AFR® set out to make a big difference in the lives of Americans living each day in fear of hunger. Rather than send holiday gifts to clients, AFR® regions identified urgent needs within our own communities. The AFR® Team made a commitment to execute and worked hard to create a positive difference for others, taking a bite out of hunger where we live, work, and play – across the nation. AFR® Gives Back has proven once again that “Together We Can” move mountains!
