Breathe Easier! We’re Building our Community Partnerships Together!

The staff at The Breathing Association teamed up with The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio on Friday, May 29th.  The staff rolled up their sleeves and built tables under the expert guidance of Furniture Bank’s Volunteer Coordinator Colin Veatch. Some wielded power tools, others hammers and paint rollers – but in the end everyone knew that it was more than just a partnership to build tables for a day – families served through The Breathing Association’s HEAP and Outreach programs are frequently referred to The Furniture Bank for help in providing furniture for their homes.
