Bridging AZ Furniture Bank
Got Legs Furniture and Décor is owned and operated by Bridging AZ Furniture Bank, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving Arizona families and veterans transitioning from chronic homelessness. Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and the general public, our parent organization has been able to provide furniture and bedding for low-income, at-risk individuals.
Since 2004, Bridging AZ has served more than 60,000 people and distributed 260,000-plus items to the needy. They have also been recognized as a leading charity in the community ― winning the coveted 2007 Sterling Award for Nonprofit of the Year.
Veterans Furniture Project
Part of the Bridging AZ Furniture Bank umbrella, the Veterans Furniture Project is an outreach program that engages the community’s veterans in specialized woodworking classes. Through a meaningful experience, veterans handcraft one-of-a-kind pens, which are proudly displayed and offered for sale at Got Legs Furniture and Décor.
The workshop teaches disabled, unemployed and formerly homeless U.S. veterans new skills and aims to instill confidence as they begin the path toward self-sufficieny. If you are a veteran and would like to participate in the program, please use the Veterans Funiture Project contact form to learn more.
