Ashley Donates Beds, Comfort Kits to Families Hit by Wildfires
Ashley has shown her support for the local branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada in the wake of the wildfires that just occurred in the Okanagan region.
As part of the Giving Tuesday event that took place last week, the furniture and mattress firm, which has locations in Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon, Kamloops, and Salmon Arm, has contributed 68 beds and comfort kits to the Hope to Dream program. There are also locations in Salmon Arm. A mattress, a frame, a pillow, sheets, and a blanket are all included in each and every bed set.
A cash donation of $4,500 was provided by Ashley to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada in addition to the bed sets. This donation was made in order to assist in the provision of essential comfort and hygiene supplies to those who were affected by the fires. There will be a matching contribution of $4,500 from Crowe MacKay LLP.

The charitable organization’s Central and Southern Interior branch, which is headquartered in Kelowna, received the funds and beds; nonetheless, the contributions had an effect on 61 families located throughout the whole Okanagan Valley territory.
A mother who wished to remain anonymous expressed her gratitude to Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Ashley for the generous donation that they made to their family.
The mother was given a bed and a comfort kit. We are really appreciative of your kindness and generosity, as well as the fact that these things make a significant difference in our lives as single parents.
