This summer, American Furniture Warehouse donated time to Easterseals Colorado at their Rocky Mountain Village Home camp in Empire, Colorado as part of a volunteer day on Thursday, August 24th, 2017. Over 50 AFW employees from across Colorado rolled up their sleeves and spent the day clearing and burning brush, sealing and painting cabins, and clearing out weeds from the camp grounds. The volunteer day was successful thanks to the many employees who joined forces on Thursday to help AFW give back to the community and to support the Easterseals Colorado foundation.
