Whether helping a local school or supplying firefighters with new mattresses, Home Furnishings Association member Walker Furniture of Las Vegas, Nev., is always looking for ways to help its community.

This month, the store partnered with the National Hockey League’s VegasGolden Knights to sponsor the first “Beds for Kids” event at City National Arena. Eighteen recipients were selected to receive new beds, and their families were invited to a private two-hour skate party with Golden Knights personnel.

Community partners Clark County Fire Department, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Communities In Schools and Las Vegas Rescue Mission helped Walker Furniture identify children in the community who needed a bed.
