How to Race a Bed - The Columbus Team

2023 Furniture Bank of Central Ohio’s Bed Race

Have you heard? The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is holding a bed race as a fundraiser on October 14, 2023 at Easton Town Center! Teams will be racing a bed on wheels, style counts, but speed rules. The Columbus Team is proud to once again be involved in the race! This year, we will once again be sponsoring the Kids Zone!

Why Join?

The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio uses donations to help families in need in our community. When a family becomes homeless, or experiences eviction, they often lose most of their possessions. When they begin to rebuild their lives, the Furniture Bank offers assistance. No child should have to sleep on the floor. Your help can insure that more children in need can sleep soundly in a bed of their own.

The Furniture Bank serves 80 families a week, 95% of whom earn $24,000/year or less, and the bank donates 1000 furniture pieces each week, with a special emphasis on providing beds. Beds are a big priority for them, as no child should have to sleep on a cold, hard floor. While The Columbus Team helps clients find their dream homes every day, we are humbled to help families in need create a place they can call home once a year. Will you join us in this heartwarming endeavor?
