Thank you for all your support this last year. You probably know how the Arizona Tax Credit works and helps us continue to do good work in the community. Just a reminder the donation amount has doubled to $400 per person or $800 per married couple and if you file Arizona taxes you receive 100% back as a Tax Credit.
What you may not have know is:
- We purchase items we need to fulfill our mission, in 2019 we purchased 386 new beds (300 beds for veterans) plus over 400 bed frames.
- All our veterans receive a welcome box containing new sheets, towels, cookware, dishes, kitchen utensils, a pillow and a $50 WalMart gift card.
- The VA has contacted us to replicate our pen making program as a recreational therapy program for veterans.
- Your donation may be doubled - Check HERE to check if your company will double your donation - OR offer a contribution for volunteer work

What Else Have We Been Up To?
I am so pleased to report the Veterans Furniture Project is going strong.
Each week Jim and dedicated volunteers prepare woodworking materials and travel to a Veterans housing complex in Phoenix and engage veterans in woodworking.
This year we experienced an unexpected outcome, the pen making program has created a community among veterans living in the complex and some of the vets who have moved away return just for the classes.
We Do Need YOUR Support
Acquiring and delivering furniture is a lot of work, we never charge veterans for the woodworking classes and the pen making program is not a funded program. We have made it this far with the support of our friends and dedicated team, but now we need YOU to help us get to the finish line!
Every donation helps, no matter how small. Your generous contribution is also eligible for an Arizona Tax Credit, so get rewarded for helping a good cause.
