Season for Sharing: Furniture bank helps the needy's houses feel like home
At the center of any strong family is a kitchen table. At the table, conversations and debates are held, meals are consumed, juice is spilled.
Jim Piscopo, the founder of Bridging Arizona furniture bank, puts it this way: “It’s the place where the family does business.”
Since becoming a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2004, Piscopo says Bridging Arizona has given out thousands of kitchen tables and other pieces of furniture to help people in need get down to the business of being a family.
