Divine Living in Asheville North Carolina had been in the area for many years. But in 2016 we decided that we wanted to be part of the bigger picture and make a better difference right here in our local community. Phyllis, the owner, looked at several Non-Profits to work with, and ended up reaching out to Homeward Bound as furniture is one of the main needs when assisting people with moving out of homelessness and into a new residence.
Today, we are happy to announce that Divine Living is launching the 1st Annual Asheville Furniture Drive to benefit Homeward Bound. From August 16th – September 30th, we will be collecting gently used furniture and home decor items at 1856 Hendersonville Rd in south Asheville. Folks can either drop their items off, or arrange a pick-up time.
In addition to this, many local businesses are teaming up with Divine Living as Ambassadors. As an Ambassador, they will collect and gather at least three pieces of furniture from their employees and staff, to donate to the Asheville Furniture Drive. Together, we are going to make a big difference in so many lives. Stay tuned as we will be announcing our wonderful Ambassadors soon!
