A pair of Nevada cops work with a local furniture store to give all new furniture to a struggling family. For nearly three decades, Las Vegas furniture store Walker Furniture has been providing entire homes worth of furniture to families in need for free as part of their annual “Home for the Holidays” charitable event.
This year, one of the lucky recipients was the Williams family of Spring Valley. One of their seven children, their son Ray Ray, was taking part in a mentorship program with Las Vegas Metro Officers Quincy Gibbons and Anthony Edwards. When the officers took Ray Ray home at the end of the program, they got to meet his mom, Denise Williams, and they could see that she was struggling. “I could tell that she would really benefit from the help, so I was just trying to make it easier on her,” Edwards says.
The officers enlisted help from Walker Furniture and soon the family got a delivery of new beds, mattresses, living room furniture, and all new Christmas decorations. The whole family was blown away by the kind gesture. "Thank you so much. I really do appreciate it,” says Denise. “I'm very grateful and thankful that my family was chosen for this, I don't know what else to say, I’m just excited!” But the moment was summed up best by the youngest member of the Williams family, little Malaya, who said, "Yay, it's a Merry Christmas!"
