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!
AFR® Gives Back mixed things up a bit in 2017 with our first ever regional “Together We Can” challenge. Each month a new region was challenged to give back to our local communities through volunteering or charitable activities. When a challenge was completed, that region would then nominate the next region for their part of the challenge. We started in Dallas, TX and moved around the country – working in teams to give back to worthy causes including soup kitchens, food banks, animal shelters, and many more. Team AFR® was up for the challenge and had an awesome time volunteering, donating, and giving back to our communities.
