Wilmington, NC – Ashley today announced it has partnered with Eden Village to donate over $30,000 worth of unused furniture and decor from the HGTV® Smart Home 2022, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, to local homes. This donation will furnish Eden Village’s development of a 31-unit tiny home community for low-income and chronically homeless individuals, estimated to be completed by November 2022. Ashley is a presenting sponsor of the HGTV Smart Home 2022, providing all furniture for the home, which is available at local Ashley stores and online at Ashley.com.
