FORT WALTON BEACH — Ashley HomeStore has joined "Feed the Fight," a program which supports local restaurants and bolsters morale for health care professionals during this difficult time.


21 Ashley HomeStore locations, locally owned and operated by Turner Furniture Holding Corporation, plan to provide 10,000 meals to their communities during the month of April.


COVID-19 is placing historic economic hardships on local restaurants in communities across the country. Concurrently, local health care professionals are at the front line of this crisis.


Ashley’s contributions will benefit local businesses, while providing hot meals to surrounding hospitals.


"We are all in this fight together," said Russell Turner, owner of the local Ashley HomeStores. "This is the least we can do to thank the selfless efforts and hard work from our front line health care professionals."


The store managers, as well as the warehouse managers, are personally making these pickups and deliveries in their communities, according to a press release from the company.
