Furniture Mart USA donates $25,000 to local food banks

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – March is National Nutrition Month, a time when the Furniture Mart USA family of stores dedicates a portion of every sale to local food banks across the upper Midwest. Customers shopping Furniture Mart, Ashley, and Unclaimed Freight
Furniture had an opportunity with every purchase to help feed the hungry in their community. They responded with
$25,000 given to help fight hunger in six states.

“Together, we made a positive difference in our communities. Today, more than ever, local food banks need our help,” said
Bill Hinks, Founder and Chairman of Furniture Mart USA. “Good nutrition is a basic human need. Yet many families
continue to struggle to make ends meet. Food insecurity shouldn’t be one of their worries.”

This is the eighth year for Furniture Mart USA’s Hunger Campaign, which to date has provided more than three-million
meals through food and monetary donations. Food Bank partners in this year’s campaign included Feeding South Dakota,
Great Plains Food Bank, Minnesota FoodShare, Food Bank of Iowa, Riverbend Food Bank, Northeast Iowa Food Bank, CAER,
HACAP, and Food Bank of Siouxland.

“We know that our customers believe passionately in this important cause, and we do, too,” Hinks said. “We want to help
our neighbors in their time of need. A campaign like this truly is a win/win for everyone!”

Furniture Mart USA, is based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and operates more than 55 stores in 38 communities across Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
